The Story begins: "In the Jingle Jangle Jungle on a cold and rainy day, four little friends found a perfect place to play. Moose had marvelous antlers and Lion, a golden mane. Zebra had fantastic stripes and Sheep . . . well, Sheep was plain. None of them noticed that someone else was there. Sleeping in that cave was a very cranky . . .Bear! 'Roaaaar,' went the cranky bear, 'Roar, Roar, Roar!' He gnashed his teeth and stomped his feet and chased them out the door."
The story continues with the friends trying to cheer up the cranky bear and the results are fun to read aloud. This is a book that would be easy to memorize, and if you get it, you probably will memorize it because your child will want to read it over and over again. I'll be on the lookout for Bland's other Bear books.
I had not heard of this book before finding it last week, and it's been around since 2008, so I wanted to make sure that those of you who
Read to a child today even if that child is you.
