Toddler-PreS—This is a charming book about a father bear and his cub spending a fun-filled day together. The smart dad starts the day with silly-shaped pancakes. After breakfast, the two of them set out for the park, where they play all sorts of games. They soar on the swings, bounce around like kangaroos, and act like scary monsters. Clearly, the cub's father wants nothing more than to make his little one happy. He jumps high off the swing and into a pile of leaves. He is also patient and understanding. He doesn't mind getting soaked at bath time while his cub splashes in the tub. He likes stargazing and stories, snuggles and hugs. The simple illustrations and the handwritten style of the text give the book an appealing, childlike appearance.
VERDICT Young listeners will enjoy this delightful tale. It's perfect for one-on-one sharing.
