Baby Bear Counts One
Beach Lane, 2013 (2013)
Reviewed by Bob Walch
inter is on its way and the animals are preparing for the season of cold and snow. The little bear cub featured here will count the many creatures he encounters in the forest setting food aside or adding body fat for the frigid months to come.
here are squirrels collecting acorns, beavers constructing a dam, deer foraging in a corn field, and wild turkeys feasting on ripe, juicy grapes. Bees are storing up honey for the winter, frogs are feasting on fish, and geese are flying south. After he is done counting all these woodland critters, little bear notices the first flakes of snow falling.
here are far too many flakes to count, but the cub doesn't mind because now it is time to curl up in the family den with his mother for a long winter's snooze.
different type of counting book with a more extended text and big, colorful, animal illustrations in autumn hues, this is an excellent picture book for read aloud sessions with your toddler.
