This author has several books about Bear and they are all adorable! This story is all about Bear getting lost in the woods and how he searches and searches for his cave. His friends thankfully put out a search party for him and they end up finding him and they all get back home together. This book could be used for teaching a lesson on friendship and helping others, but I actually used it to concentrate on setting.

Aw how cute! We love the Bear books, even if they aren't really 4th grade level, we make it so! I love that they do their own drawings and have to use the text!! How fun!!
(I wish we had a little of your winter down here in GA, but not so much!!)
Thanks for linking up!
My kids love the bear books! Don't have this one yet!

I love the bear books – just found one in a pile of my daughter's Christmas books : )
Love that they have to use the page number – what a great skill to start teaching early!!
Love the Bear books from Karma Wilson….always a feel good book. I am not envious of your winters. I don't know what snow looks like, but I know I don't like cold. I'm a wimp! Lol!

I actually have a ton of these books at my listening center or in my library from Scholastic, but I've honestly never read them. Guess it's about time!
I do not have the bear books! Thank you for the suggestion. They look cute and it sounds like they are very popular! Happy New Year!
