Bear is ravenous when he wakes up from his winter sleep and has one thing on his mind: honey! Alas, it is too soon for honey, so Bear tries hard to be patient. The world around him is waking up, too, and he soon remembers all the other things he loves, like warm grass, berries, and rain. He’s almost content, until, one day, he hears a welcome buzzing sound . . . and finally it is time for Bear to delight in the thing he relishes above all others — and it is as warm, golden, sweet, and good as he remembered.
Once again, Tom Booth, author of Don’t Blink!, breaks the fourth wall to delight and entice readers young and old in this sweet and funny, experiential picture book.
How did you find this book? Don’t you know this book is a secret book? Readers will delight in being asked how they found this book. Did Monkey tell? Was it Owl? Giraffe? Maybe the animal who “told” would rather share than keep a secret. Especially when sharing a book as good as this one makes him so happy!
Lila is excited for her cousins Takeo and Rosie to visit. They’re going to ride bikes, paint, and camp together! But when the cousins arrive, everything’s wrong: Rosie and Takeo are better painters than Lila, have skateboards instead of bikes, and don’t want to camp outside. Lila is terribly disappointed until the cousins make her a surprise: a big banner for their “best cousin” Lila! This sensitive story about insecurity, hosting, and friendship reminds children that negative thoughts and anxiety over exclusion don’t always translate to reality.
