Budding ursinologists will bearly be able to contain themselves. This book is sure to leave them roaring for more! (Goodreads summary)Bears! Bears! Bears! by Bob Barner will be a crowd favorite to read aloud at story times with its rhythmic text. A variety of Bears do activities children do (fish, munch, dive, cuddle, & climb). The collage illustrations have toddler, preschooler & kindergartener appeal. One spread does refer to polar bears diving for icy seals (presumedly to eat them) so be aware of that. Simple facts about baby bears and a map showing the range of the bears pictured will delight and educate young Bear enthusiasts. For Toddlers, Preschoolers and kindergartens, and Bear themed Story Times.

    In this deceptively simple book, we are introduced to eight different bears of the world. We discover where they live, what they eat, and much more.What I thought: I loved it. The text is simple enough for preschoolers to comprehend. The illustrations are great. I love Barner's paper collage style. The bold colors are visually appealing. My favorite illustration is the sloth bears two-page spread. I met several different bears I didn't know. I especially like the spectacled bear. This would be a fun book to use for story time.Story Time Themes: Bears, Babies

    There's something infinitely attractive about collage art. And something equally attractive about bears. Bears and kids - teddy bears, Winnie the Pooh...why this fascination? Anyway, this is a soothing little book which I think I can pass off at my toddler programs because of the repetition in the pages and the very active pictures of bears doing things - eating, sleeping, sniffing flowers, climbing trees...things that children do sometime in their lives.

    This is a simple rhyming book with bright, beautiful collage work perfect for toddlers in storytime. The bears introduced vary by type and geographical region which the author provides information about in the back of the book.

    I like Bob Barner books for preschoolers and kindergartners because they're really simple, fun nonfiction, and he includes a cool map or chart or other informational text feature at the end. In this book, there's a world map and color-coded paws to show where each type of bear lives.

    About a Bear by Holly SurpliceCopyright date: 2011Rationale for Twin Text Selection:*Fits the simple, straight-forward format of the nonfiction book Bears! Bears! Bears! including the lively, colorful illustrations.*Both are geared toward K- 2/3 and can be read aloud or read by some independently.*The nonfiction book uses a series of verbs to tell what bears do, while the fiction book uses a series of adjectives to describe bears. I would use this to connect the two books to a writing activity using verbs and adjectives to describe their own bear or another animal. Both books are perfect mentor texts for primary age children.Text Structure of nonfiction Bears! Bears! Bears!:Compare/contrast different types of bearsQuestions/answers to:=What do bears do?=Where do bears live?=How do bears act?=What are baby bears like?Strategy Application with Connections:Using a graphic organizer-like a large t-chart to make a list of:Verbs from Bears! Bears! Bears!:dive lickmunchcuddlefishhugclimbdozeAdjectives from About a Bear:happysadboredgladpuzzledcurioushungrysillysleepyStudents can help the teacher make this list after or during the reading of each book. The t-chart can be posted to use in a descriptive writing activity. Older primary students can write the verbs and adjectives in their Writer's Notebook.Another option is to start the t-chart before the reading, asking for verbs and adjectives they already know about bears....activating prior knowledge. Teacher can use the fiction writer's pattern as a model:A bear can be __________A bear can be __________A bear can be __________And a bear can be ______For their writing take out "bear" and insert a different animal.As a challenge, have students rhyme the 2nd and 4th lines.The nonfiction book pattern is:Polar bears dive for an icy seal.Sun bears lick up a sticky meal.Older primary (3rd graders) may like this more challenging model....writing a couplet for another type of animal.

    Fiction text- I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen Bears! Bears! Bears! is all about different types of bears. It gives information about how bears look, their cubs, how they live, and where they live. I Want My Want My Hat Back is about a bear that is looking everywhere for his lost hat. Real bears will never run into the same situation that the bear in I Want My Hat Back did, but the area in which the bear lives, and some of the situations he runs into are realistic. The bears in both books also eat smaller creatures, although their reasoning behind each may be different.

    This is a sweet, rhyming book that features various species of bears with their mamas. The narrative is short and the collage illustrations are colorful. I read this book on my iPad, so while the color was vivid, I think I missed out on some of the effects of the texture of the collage. It's a good book and would be good for reading with preschoolers or Kindergarteners. I liked that the author explains at the end of the book where the various bears live in the world.

    It was okay...a little too confusing for a preschooler.... would be better for a kindergartner!
