KODIAK — Kodiak resident Stacy Studebaker took an idea in hibernation for nearly two decades and turned it into a children’s book.
Her inspiration for her latest book “Hey Bear Ho Bear,” which hit Kodiak bookshelves last week, came from a song her band Waterbound wrote 20 years ago. “Hey Bear Ho Bear” was a song on the band’s CD, “Alaska Animal Tales and Tunes.”
“A lot of people know it and know the song,” she said. “When I recorded the song, friends said I should turn it into a children’s book, and that seed planted in the back of my mind.”
