I read this book as a part of the reading challenge, and I had the opportunity to read this in front of an early years setting The children thoroughly enjoyed the comedic aspect of the child with the polar bear, the short sentences and rhyming words allow the children to follow the storyeasily The book was easily decodable for the children and a few of the children were able to sound out the book. This is a cute story, but it feels unfinished I also would have appreciated a different font color on some of the darker pages Black text over darkly colored images is a bad combination that I m surprised wasn t addressed during the editing process. This story includes a range of phonemes making it perfect to ready with early years The use of repetition makes it easy for children to follow and the storyline allows children to understand the importance of friendship. This is a vibrant book for foundation children as the language is repetitive and simple This could also be used for an EAL child due to the easy language This story is easy to follow and the pictures really hold the children s imagination. Despite what you may think from the title, no one is bit by a bear and then becomes a bear Instead, a boy tries to find a new home for his friend pet bear, a place where it can live The art was fantastic I love an artist who can be so expressive with a minimalist style.The story has a nice dialogic component to it When a new home isn t right, like, say, the circus, readers are encouraged to shout no This makes it a good book for preschoolers, as you ll have fun encouraging them to shout Despite what you may think from the title, no one is bit by a bear and then becomes a bear Instead, a boy tries to find a new home for his friend pet bear, a place where it can live The art was fantastic I love an artist who can be so expressive with a minimalist style.The story has a nice dialogic component to it When a new home isn t right, like, say, the circus, readers are encouraged to shout no This makes it a good book for preschoolers, as you ll have fun encouraging them to shout no along with the characters.kit Twitter Tumblr When a bear cub outgrows his home, a little boy joins him on a journey to find a new one Young readers will appreciate the bear s picky search, the gentle illustrations, and the reassuring repetitive text Don t miss the final illustration on the copyright page An endearing story of a bear living with a young boy, but then grows so much he is unable to live there any longer The boy goes in search of an appropriate place for the bear to live, none of which are to the satisfaction of the bear That is until the boy takes the bear to the Arctic, where he discovers his love of snow and decides to live there The boy and bear remain friends.This would be a good story to read in the early years as it contains examples of phonemes with different graphemes. This is a graphically bold, very modern and very appealing picture book for kids and adults of all ages It s absolutely my favorite picture book in a long time.
