Bear's Busy Family [Board Book]


Product Description
Product Details


PreS-Gr 1-Another winning story from the author and illustrator of Bear in a Square (1998) and Bear on a Bike (1999, both Barefoot). In simple rhyming couplets, a bear describes each of his relatives, all of whom are in the midst of an activity: "Smell the bread my grandma bakes/Touch the bowls my grandpa makes." Not until the end of the tale do readers discover that each family member is preparing for the bear's younger sibling's first birthday party. Large, cheerfully colored illustrations in pen and ink, watercolor, and crayon depict a happy extended family working and coming together to celebrate a special day. The endpapers display the results of the bears' endeavors and the last double-page spread shows an actual "Family Tree" with the relatives perched on the branches. An entertaining book that may be helpful when explaining familial relationships to young children, and suitable for reading aloud or for beginning readers.-Maryann H.
