Bring on the Bear!
July 14th, 2009
I made the most wonderful book discovery at Borders recently. They were having a big sale and practically giving away some kids books that had gotten a bit banged up. On a whim, I picked up a board book called Bear Snores On …
…and was immediately in love. This is by far my favorite baby book (and that’s saying something, because I am an avowed Sandra Boynton fan). It has super pictures, a cute story and absolutely wonderful rhythmic words. Lots of onomatopoeia too. It’s enchanting.
And then, just when I thought life couldn’t get any better, I made an even bigger discovery: there are more! Oh joy, oh bliss. Karma Wilson has a whole “Bear” series , including Bear Wants More, Bear Feels Sick, Bear’s New Friend, Bear Feels Scared, and Bear Stays Up for Christmas.
I’m putting them on Miss Mouse’s birthday wish list but it is taking all of my (admittedly pathetic) self-control to keep from buying them all from Amazon. Right Now.
