Summary: (from my library catalog) As Bear walks in the forest, with pencil in hand, he meets several grumpy forest dwellers and knows just what to do for them.

LittleBearBook1I like this book because: I know Anthony Browne’s work, I love Anthony Browne’s work. With a passion! But I had NO IDEA this was his artwork when I picked the book off the shelf and started reading it. NO idea until I got to the LAST page. Almost like deja vu! Possibly a nod to Harald and the Purple Crayon, but with a simplicity and a charm all it’s own!

LittleBearBook2Resources/activities: draw something you imagine would change the mood of persons or things you encounter on a walk, ride, or drive – maybe from your path to/from school.
