Parenteau, Shirley. Bears in the Snow, illustrated by David Walker. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2016. $15.99. Content: G.
Four little bears can hardly wait to go sledding with Big Brown Bear. But there is only one sled and it’s hard to take turns. They try to all go together, but fall off into the snow. Big Brown Bear comes up with a plan where they can all sled at the same time and have a wonderful time.
The story is simple, but fun. The dilemma and solution are age appropriate. The rhymes and meter flow well for a great read aloud book. The acrylic illustrations steal the show, bringing the four bears colorfully to life.
