FRIDAY BOOK SHARING!
Simplicity. And a thank you. This is a sweet story of a bear with a box. What is inside? It’s a mystery, but Bear is certain that it is perfect for Mouse. Sadly, Bear meets some fellow animals along the way who aren’t so sure and cause some doubt. Bear becomes worried that his gift won’t be as wonderful as he thought it would be. But Bear’s initial instinct is right. He knows his friend and he has the perfect gift for Mouse. The illustrations are expressive and simple – colors against a warm white background, showing each character in detail. The text is large for young eyes learning to read letters. And the story is a perfect tale of generosity and thoughtfulness, highlighting a kind spirit and the value of friendship. Greg Foley created a lovely tale for young readers and also a thoughtful tale for older readers too. Kindness, friendship, generosity, thoughtfulness. Thank You Bear.
