Parenteau, Shirley Bears in a Band. Illustrated by David Walker. Candlewick Press, 2016. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK. When little bears see their instruments on chairs, they immediately begin to play. They think their instruments are making a song, but it's really just a bunch of noise. Big Brown Bear is fast asleep and wakes to the awful noise. But it doesn't take more than a kitchen ladle and Big Brown Bear's patience before their noise improves. "When Big Brown Bear leads the little bear band, they all play together and the harmony is grand." This is a cute rhyming book with fun illustrations and tender moments. Pre-K. EL (K-3). ADVISABLE.
