There's a Bear on My Chair by Ross Collins - ESSENTIAL

Collins, Ross There’s a Bear on My ChairBOARD BOOK Nosy Crow, 2018. $8. 9781536200140  

A mouse is discouraged to find a big white polar bear sitting in his chair.  Regardless of how creative the little mouse tries to be, the bear doesn’t seem to want to move.  The mouse finally gives up and decides he will leave.  Once the bear realizes that the mouse no longer cares he goes home.  But when the bear gets home, he sees the mouse sleeping in his bed.  

This book has great characters.  The illustrations are funny with the different facial expressions and body language of the animals.  It’s a fun read aloud because the end of every sentence rhymes with the word bear throughout the entire book.  With that rhyming pattern,  it accentuates the line when the bear goes home and sees a mouse in his house. 

PRE-K – ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
