Cubby and Bubby just love picture books with lots of illustrations of animals. Karma Wilson’s series about Bear is just right for us. From Bear Snores On through Bear Says Thanks author Karma Wilson and illustrator Jane Chapman deliver a charming series of picture books sure to engage your preschoolers with their upbeat rhymes and empathetic stories. In the first book Bear is sleeping in his lair when a party of small creatures gathers to keep warm and enjoy one another’s company. Bear wakes up grumpy, because he’s missing all the fun. All eight books touch on childhood’s themes and can be read again and again. Vocabulary rich, with great illustrations.
