    There once was a little boy who had a small bear as his companion Over time the bear grew and grew to the point that he no longer fit into the small confines of a family home The boy and Bear began discussing different places the ever growing animal could live but none appealed to the large animal However once the idea of a polar habitat entered the discussion Bear loved it especially with all the snow that would surround him However there was one fork in the road When and how would the little boy and his longtime friend see one another? You’ll have to read the book to see how it all plays out Neo loved the book though was under the weather as I read It put a small smile on his face but he was not in the mood to comment much Still I could tell that he appreciated it and hope it brought about some wonderful dreams

    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 friendsThis would be a good story to read in the early years as it contains examples of phonemes with different graphemes

    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 story easily 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

    They really set this one up for a seuelI liked the use of typography to convey a single word no

    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

    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

    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 friendpet bear a place where it can live The art was fantastic I love an artist who can be so expressive with a minimalist styleThe 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 characterskit 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
