Lions, tigers and BEARS OH MY! But did you know that bears make the best buddies to read with? Come in today and join us and Carmen Oliver as she speaks and signs her new book Bears Make the Best Reading Buddies. Find out just why we all should have bears (preferably of the teddy variety) as our reading friends.
ABOUT BEARS MAKE THE BEST READING BUDDIES
All the students in the class are assigned reading buddies. Except for Adelaide. She already has one. A bear! And Adelaide is quite persuasive as she explains to her language arts teacher, Mrs. Fitz-Pea, and the reader, that bears really do make the best reading buddies. They sniff out good books. Their claws are just right for turning pages. And the bear looks rather friendly (and studious) in these crayon-bright, contemporary illustrations, making this picture book perfect for every collection.
