This Bear, That Bear by Sian Wheatcroft, published by Templar Publishing is a gorgeous rhyming picture book all about a parade of bears.
Big Bear and Little Bear are on their way to see the parade and can’t wait to see what sort of bears they will see. Every kind of bear makes their way in the procession; from tall bears and short bears to hairy bears, fairy bears and big-fluffy-cloud bears.
Little Bear is having the best time at the parade and soon day turns to night and the parade is coming to an end. But not before a brilliant firework show to finish the day off with a bang.
The bright and colourful illustrations are really engaging with lots of funny details, coupled with the abundance of descriptive but uncomplicated language it provides a rich platform for building vocabulary ans starting conversations.
This is a wonderful book to read with little ones, especially at bedtimes as this story ends with Big Bear tucking Little Bear into bed. It’s lovely to see the sweet relationship between the two bears as they enjoy a perfect day together.
Written in rhyme, this book has a great bouncing rhythm which is perfect for sharing with really little ones as they will love to hear the repetitive sound of the text.
