Bears to the Rescue by David Bierdrzycki- OPTIONAL

Biedrzycki, David. Bears to the Rescue, PICTURE BOOK. Charlesbridge, 2016. Set up like a newscast, this book follows the events in a robbery and a day at the town carnival. Two wandering bears get involved as they look for their lost bear cub, find him at the carnival, and inadvertently catch the robbers. This book had too much going on. It was really difficult to follow the story because it jumped between stories and reporters and their is a ticker at the bottom of each with headlines, just like you’d see in a real news report. The story was lost in all of the scene and character changes and it seemed fairly pointless. A cute idea for a book, but the final product just didn’t deliver. EL- OPTIONAL.
