It takes this Bear a while to find someone who will give him an encouraging comment. Greg Foley’s “Thank you Bear” tells the story, with minimal text and illustrations, of Bear who finds a box which he thinks will be perfect for his friend Mouse. But other friends are a little critical of his find.
Owl said, “I’ve seen those before.”
Elephant said, “I think it’s too small.”
Bunny said, “I don’t have time to look right now.”
(Every time I read Bunny’s comment, I wonder how many times I’ve said that to my own kids when they have something important to show me!)
Luckily for Bear, Mouse is very grateful.
“It’s the greatest thing ever! Thank you, Bear!”
Greg has a website with more information about other Bear books, plus some great online games.
