Everything about The Very Cranky Bear works for me.
I love the illustrations, the rhyme, the characters and the story itself!
Four friends (a zebra, moose, lion and sheep) find a cave to shelter in from the storm…until they disturb a very cranky bear.
They decide to cheer up the bear by thinking about the things that make them feel good. The results are hilarious…although the cranky bear doesn’t find it quite so amusing!
It’s wonderful to read aloud with plenty of gentle frights and laughter.
This book is on high rotation during storytime – regualr requests are made at work and at home for the angry bear book. Highly recommended for 3+ audiences.
