Bears in a Band

author: Shirley Parenteau
illustrator: David Walker

series name:
Bears on Chairs

The little bears pick up their instruments and play a noisy song. They donít care if the notes are wrong! But uh-oh, Big Brown Bear is fast asleep. Will their lively music wake him up? A small moment of trepidation segues into a jubilant performance in a story that will be sweet music to little ears.

CLANG! CLANG! TOOTLEY-TOOO! The impossibly cute bears are back ó and this time they have musical instruments at the ready.
