BEARS AND A BIRTHDAY celebrated its very own birthday as publication arrives! In the 4th book of the series, Big Brown Bear feels left out when his four little friends won't let him peek into the kitchen, but the surprise is all for him. David Walker's illustrations are irresistably sweet, as always. I want to pick the bears from his artwork and give each one a big hug!
Kirkus Reviews calls the book "Gentle and full of charm." School Library Journal says, "The text is light and fun with an easy-to-read rhythm and rhyme. Booklist Online says, "This is a sweet story of friendship and birthdays, which would be a good pick for storytime or sharing one-on-one."
