Books We Love #2

Old Bear is written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes (know best for his books Julius, the Baby of the World and Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse). We love this book for it's strikingly bright watercolor paintings and think it's the perfect book to read in the spring!

The Story: Old Bear settles into his cave for a long winter's sleep and dreams he is a little cub once again. In his dreams he visits each of the four seasons and pictures all of the things he loves best about each one. When he awakens, he steps out of his cave and is greeted by the blooming flowers and warm sun of spring!

We Think: The most loved page of this book is when it rains blueberries on Little Bear. We could read this book over and over, learning about the seasons and soaking in the very bright colors.
