andlt;b andgt;What better way for Bear to say thanks, than to have a big dinner with all his friends!andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Bear has come up with the perfect way to say thanksand#8212;a nice big dinner! When Bear decides to throw a feast, his friends show up one by one with different platters of delicious food to share. Thereand#8217;s just one problem: Bearand#8217;s cupboards are bare! What is he to do?andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp; Karma Wilsonand#8217;s playful text and Jane Chapmanand#8217;s charming illustrations bring to life this celebration of family and friendship. Young readers will delight in discovering the special gift Bear has to share.

Review:

"In Bear's eighth woodland outing, he is bored in his cave, so he plans a gathering — but his cupboards are bare. Serendipitously, his gentle friends stop by, one by one, bringing food: Badger brings fish, Hare brings muffins, and a trio of birds brings pears and herbs for tea. Though Bear regretfully admits that he has nothing to offer in exchange, they assure him that his presence is all that they need. Chapman's glowing acrylics create a joyful atmosphere in a story that obliquely references Thanksgiving, but functions as a reminder of the importance of gratitude any time of year. Ages 3 — 7. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
