Bear Wants More
I've shared with you before about one of my youngest's favorite friends in Bear Feels Sick. If your kids enjoy that title as much as mine do, then you'll be ready for a new "Bear" story. Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman give us another charming rhyming tale of friendship, perfect for a "springtime read-aloud" in Bear Wants More, and don't forget to let the kids "read" aloud all the But the bear wants more! lines, beginning with:
When springtime comes,
in his warm winter den
a bear wakes up
very hungry and thin!
We especially enjoyed Chapman's (who lives with her family in Dorset, England) settings of cheerful emerald forests and meadows.
