Bears and a Birthday

author: Shirley Parenteau

series name:
Bears on Chairs

Features an audio read-along! Mmm, something smells good in the kitchen. Big Brown Bear is curious—what are those little bears up to? Are they making something special? No peeking, Big Brown Bear! Floppy and Fuzzy, Yellow and Calico have a cake to bake and a gift to wrap, then it’s finally time for the birthday surprise. Delightful rhymes and huggable bears are just the right ingredients for a cheerful birthday read-aloud.

In their fourth endearing escapade, four small bears prepare a celebration for Big Brown Bear’s birthday.
