I didn’t open the cover of this new arrival at the library until ML and I could enjoy it together. I’m glad I waited. The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland is a delightful, rhyming read-aloud. After all, it’s set in the Jingle, Jangle, Jungle.
This fall, I’m presenting a Bear themed story time. I asked ML if I should read The Very Cranky Bear to the preschoolers. She put her thumb up. Can’t wait to ask them to show me a cranky face.
The illustrations are hilarious. I know I use the word “hilarious’ often in my posts. But that’s the great thing about children’s books so many of them are hilarious. Time to get out the thesaurus.
The Very Cranky Bear is a side-splitting, gut-busting read!
