Bear on a Bike
Right after I read the first two lines of this book for the first time, my three-year-old daughter Elfe piped up with "Where going, bear?" She was riveted for the rest of book and couldn't wait to find out where Bear was going on his bike, his raft, his train, his boat, his carriage, and his rocket ship.
Elfe loves this book, and will even "read" it in the car to herself when we are driving; there are so many details in the pictures that she can pick out and talk about even though she can't actually read the words yet, and the story is simple enough that she can remember what each page is about.
We also read this book at bed time, the ending is perfect for saying good night and my daughter likes to wave back at Bear as he's standing on the moon on the last page. We both love this book and can't wait to read the rest of the Bear series!
Bear on a Bike, and it is also available in a paperback version. Both versions are normally $6.99 but the board book is currently on sale for $5.99!
There is also a Spanish language version, Oso en bicicleta, available in paperback for $6.99.
Looking for a gift? The Barefoot Bear Gift Set would be perfect! All six Bear books (board book versions), in an eco-friendly re-usable green bag with a gift tag for $40.
