Books of the Week Oct. 2 – 6
Title: “Bear Feels Scared”
Author: Karma Wilson
Illustrator: Jane Chapman
Reading Level: 2.3
This is a fantastic book to open a discussion with young children about feeling scared.
Author Karma Wilson tells a simple story of a large bear that gets lost in a storm as night falls. Poor Bear huddles next to a tree, feeling scared and alone. Bear’s friends are waiting for him at home and soon become worried.
They set out to rescue him, and soon everyone is back home safe.
I love the way the author uses a great big bear to illustrate how anyone can become scared and need their friends to help them. Bear’s friends are much smaller than he is but are still there for him and comfort him.
Hope you stop by the library soon to check out this book! Happy reading!
