Bears on Chairs

author: Shirley Parenteau
illustrator: David Walker

series name:
Bears on Chairs

Four chairs. Four cuddly bears. All is well until Big Brown Bear shows up — what a stare! — and wants a seat. Can these clever bears put their heads together (among other things) and make space for one more? With expressive illustrations and a sustained rhyme in every line, this winsome tale makes sharing irresistible and is sure to have little listeners sitting up to take notice.

“Between the unerringly positive approach to a common early-childhood dilemma and the can't-miss rhyme, this will find its place on many a shelf.” —Kirkus Reviews
