The First three books of Oskar’s Adventures are Oskar and the Bear, Oskar and the Moon Rocks and Oskar and the Storm. Kelly Maree is working on the next books in the series, aiming for around 20 books to complete the set.
The Oskar’s Adventures Series books are delighting rhyming stories perfect for little ones. Kelly Maree has done a fantastic job creating a trilogy of children’s books that are fun, with a great underlying message that kids will understand.
The words have been carefully chosen for maximum impact. They are words with significant meaning, and they allow readers to think and reflect as well as giving audiences space and time to explore the illustrations in detail. Working with children I understand the need for creative stories to take them on magical adventures and Kelly Maree’s stories do just that.

Oskar and the Bear is an absolutely adorable book. From a teacher’s standpoint, for the youngest of readers there’s a lot of great rhyming schemes that help a child develop phonological awareness, for early readers the repetitive nature makes it easy for them to follow along and develop their reading skills.
Kelly Maree has written a story with a strong message about friendship and bravery. I know both parents and teachers adore books that teach our kids about important life lessons.

Kelly Maree has captured the reader by creating rhyming lessons to teach children, lessons that we try to teach our little ones as they grow and ask important life questions about themselves and their surrounding world.
I had the privilege of reading all three stories in the series and as a parent myself, I could not recommend these books highly enough, to parents, grandparents and educators.
I am very proud of Kelly Maree and her beautiful imaginative mind to come up with this masterpiece of Oskar’s Adventures Series.

Oskar and the Bear is a charming story, showing that first impressions can be deceptive and shouldn’t be relied upon. Kelly Maree has created an optimistic story that’s beautifully written and illustrated. The gentle rhythmic language would be perfect both for bedtime reading and for young readers.

Oskar and the Bear is a beautifully written and illustrated children’s book from start to finish. There are a myriad of teachable lessons throughout the book and children will relate not only to the main character Oskar but also to his new found friend. The story teaches compassion, kindness and most of all the power of friendship. Loved it! I want to sample more books by this fine author, kudos to Kelly Maree.
Oskar and the Bear is wonderful rhyming read. Kelly Maree should be very proud of her work, it’s just simply a gorgeous book.
