Literature Links: Something About a Bear by Jackie Morris

Next week we will be starting our "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" Thematic Bear Unit. I love the bear unit in winter because it feels so cozy. I can't keep myself from yawning as I read Sleepy Bears by Mem Fox. My classroom already has teddy bears hanging out in the book nook.

I found a new book this week that will serve as the perfect introduction to the different types of bears we will study.  Something About a Bear,  by Jackie Morris, was featured on the International Reading Association's "The Best Picture Books of 2014". As soon as I saw it, I had to have it.

It arrived today (thanks, Amazon Prime!) and I have to say that I am not disappointed!  Take a look at the gorgeous illustrations!

The book is beautiful, and I love the flowing text that introduces the distinct characteristics of bears around the world.

I hope my students love it as much as I do!
