Gift from Pam W.

Little Bear and Big Bear do everything together, from chores to playing, until it's time to go home to their cozy cave home.

Best rhyme book ever. When the farmer takes off his clothes and jumps in the pond with the animals, it's uproar in the audience (3-4 year olds - EDIT: the toddlers over two loved it as well, they just enjoyed the general mayhem and the beautiful illustrated animals more than the twist). Sooo classy. Rhymes are refined and perfectly age appropriate at the same time. Good for learning animals and clothes, too...

EDIT/2: I realised just now that Waddell is also the author of another favourite of mine (and the children's): Owl Babies!
This guy is on the way to becoming one of my favourite people :D

I can't believe I hadn't already reviewed this one. One of my favs!
It addresses children's fears and anxieties in a simple way, allowing even the youngest ones to identify with the three little owls who wait for their mummy to come back to the hollow in the tree. There is the one who puts on a brave face, the one who imagines the worst, and the one who just wants their mummy!
Repetitions and very short blocks of text make this book enjoyable by all age groups from 2 to 6, maybe even by some slightly younger child with an early knack for books, stories and relatively prolonged focused attention.… (mais)
