A Visitor For Bear, Bear and Mouse by Bonny Becker

a visitor for bear bear and mouse

There are many opportunities for voice inflection. Then we find out that as the tea commences Bear becomes friendly towards Mouse because Mouse is willing to pay attention to him and look at his headstands and comment on the loveliness of the fire. During the tea, Bear discovers that he likes mouse's company. The heart-warming ending, while perhaps not so surprising, was quite satisfying, and the watercolor, ink and gouache illustrations were just adorable! If I have read it, I move on to Sniffles for Bear, Bedtime for Bear or Birthday for Bear. Bear opens up the door and looks down to see a small grey mouse. Maybe I just like unlikely friendship.

And though that would have been a nice enough idea, it's been done before with frogs, apparently. So up till now we have lying, coercion, and ignoring another person's expressed boundaries.

I read this to the kids during afternoon tea time, and they were so into it they were hardly eating! Now the little gray mouse shows up in drawers and hanging visibly all over the house and all family members take delight in participating. He is indeed small and gray and bright-eyed but it's really his single-minded attentiveness that makes him such a sterling companion. Another interesting note about the illustration is when the bear is looking for the mouse the mouse is very small, so the reader must look for him which I think kids would find fun. Why I Read This: It was on the books to read to your kids before kindergarten list. There's a perception out there that if you slap a pair of big brown eyes and a furry tail on something, badda-bing! The author never explains how the mouse keeps finding his way back into the house as mice often do , but our girls are convinced it is magic. A lot of people might disagree with that, but I'm going to make a case here. He is described as an attentive listener when he and bear eventually have tea, but leading up to that he completely disregards everything bear says.

Perhaps it was the req This is a really fun book to read aloud and shows the meaning of friendship and the goodness of having company. I really enjoyed reading this book, as it is a simple story which has a nice moral to it: to give people a chance. In any case, we really enjoyed this story! He had me read the book several times. Maybe I think that mice are really cute in literature? Just remember' when reading it to them, to use a big gruff voice for the bear, and a teeny, tiny little voice for the mouse. It is a great story about a bear who wants no visitors and a mouse who is persistent in showing up all over the place. Bonny Becker lives in Seattle.

Finally mouse begins to le Adorable tale nominated for a California Young Reader Medal this year. There are many opportunities for voice inflection. This teaches some pretty creepy lessons to children. The bear in the story wants nothing more than to be left alone and slowly changes these feelings at the request of a very stubborn mouse who wants to spend time with him. Each entry includes a meaty and thoughtful annotation, a germ a series of practical, do-able, useful, pithy ideas for reading, writing, and illustrating prompts and other activities across the curriculum ; a useful list of exemplary related titles; and subject designations for each title to ascertain where the book might fit thematically into your curricular plan or program. It only happens once, but I like seeing an illustrator know how to ratchet up a story's build-up and suspense through carefully chosen moments. I read this book 17 times this week to various classes and loved every reading.
