Bears Make the Best Reading Buddies





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. 


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.


Carmen Oliver founded the Booking Biz, an agency devoted to bringing award-winning childrens authors and illustrators to schools, libraries, and special events. She blogs regularly for ReaderKidz, a website that provides teachers, librarians, and parents with the resources and inspiration to foster a love of reading in kids, K-5, and judges childrens writing contents for the Texas Book Festival and Austin Family magazine. Bears Make the Best Reading Buddies is her debut picture book. Carmen grew up in Canada and now lives in Texas with her family.

If you cannot attend the event and would like to order a signed copy of the book, add the book to your cart and put SIGNED COPY in the comments field at checkout. We ship all over the world!
