Super `read-to-me' board book,
This review is from: Snow Bears (Board book)
with a vaguely familiar ring!
From the back cover:-
`When Mummy Bear comes out to play with her baby bears, she finds three small snow bears instead.
They don't look like her baby bears -
But they love to play just the same games.'
24 sturdy board pages in the popular 2-page spread.
Clear text, on the smaller side for a board book, but emphasised in places FOR EFFECT!
This book is further enhanced by a repeat on the three baby bear responses, giving scope for interaction!
Endearing illustrations throughout.
Example of text:-
`Mummy bear came out to play with her baby bears.
They were all covered with snow.
"You look like snow bears," Mummy Bear said.
"That's what we are," said the three baby bears.
"We are snow bears!"
And that's how their snow bear game began.
"But where are my baby bears?" Mummy Bear asked.
"I don't know where we are," said the biggest snow bear.
"I haven't seen us," said the middle-sized snow bear.
"We aren't here, Mummy Bear," said the smallest snow bear.
"Then who can I play with?" sighed Mummy Bear.......'
The snow bears offer to play with Mummy Bear and what an exciting time they all have, until the smallest bear is too cold and wants to go home.
As the warmth changes everything, the baby bears own up, with a different set of responses!
Super story, from Martin Waddell, as always!
