There’s A Bear in the Window
June Pitman-Hayes &
Celebrating our great teddy bear hunt of the 2020 lockdown. In English and Maori.
Well, of course the cover art tells the story, doesn’t it!
I immediately knew what this book would be about, and as it’s still uppermost in some youngsters’ minds, it seems so appropriate for young readers.
The cover art is eye catching and well up with Minky Stapleton’s other quality works, while June Pitman-Hayes’ grasp of current topics for children is paramount throughout this lovely book!
I cannot wait to read it to my grandson, who adores books.
Because there are questions asked in this story, it’s a great tool for prompting a child to express their point of view, if they were that bear in the window. While some might see rainbows, another might see people in the street eating cake. And the farm bear wears gumboots – delightful.
Don’t forget to download or stream the songs in English and Maori so kiddies can sing along.
