If You Were a Panda Bearby Florence Minor
Synopses & Reviews
The authors of If You Were a Penguin, Wendell and Florence Minor, turn their attention to bears in the educational picture book If You Were a Panda Bear.
If You Were a Panda Bear introduces different types of bears to young children. Through the poems in this charming storybook, kids will learn that pandas are shy and eat bamboo, black bears love to climb trees, and grizzly bears can be up to ten feet tall. A section at the back includes even more fun animal facts.
The full-color illustrations are playful and bring the personality of each bear wonderfully to life.
If you were a Panda bear,
Guess what you would wear?
A black-and-white suit
You'd be very shy,
Then you'd take a long nap—
Everyone knows black bears are black, but did you know they can climb trees? Which kind of bear has funny hair? Which one loves catching fish?
Wendell and Florence Minor celebrate the varied personalities of a parade of bears in this spirited collection of poems about our most playful—and lovable—friends.
