Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One by one, a whole host of different animals and birds find their way out of the cold and into Bear's cave to warm up. But even after the tea has been brewed and the corn has been popped, Bear just snores on!

See what happens when he finally wakes up and finds his cave full of uninvited guests — all of them having a party without him!

Review:

"There's a moment of tension when Bear unexpectedly wakes up and the uninvited guests wonder if they'll be evicted. But Wilson demonstrates how well she knows her audience: the bear only bemoans the fact that he slept through all the fun; the unwitting host proves that he may be the biggest party animal of all." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

In a cave in the woods,

in his deep, dark lair,

through the long, cold winter

sleeps a great brown bear.

Synopsis:

Bear and his friends will charm little ones in this new format

Early one morning, a little bear found a little box.

So begins this simple but extremely satisfying picture book, winner of the Charlotte Zolotow award. Now in board book format for little hands, Thank You Bear is a wonderful mystery of a story that asks a question that even the youngest of children will enjoy guessing the answer to--what is in Bear's box?

From red fox to gray elephant, colorful animals tell Bear what they think is inside. But it's not until the very last page, that all is revealed and in the very sweetest way.

About the Author

Karma Wilson's first poem was published at the tender age of six. The poem was ironically titled, "I Don't Wanna Write a Poem!" Growing up, she had no desire to write. But Providence had different plans, and now Karma writes poems for a living when she's not busy being a wife and raising three kids. In her spare hours Karma spends time in the wilderness, lifts weights, cooks, and kick boxes. And she loves writing.

This book is wonderful! It's perfect for young children b/c of the rhythm of the words. It doesn't just rhyme- it can be chanted or sung just as easily as read. My daughter loves to listen to the words and look at the pictures. This is definitely a favorite!
