Bears and a Birthday

author: Shirley Parenteau
illustrator: David Walker

series name:
Bears on Chairs

Mmm, something smells good in the kitchen. Big Brown Bear is curious: what are those little bears up to? 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!

“Parenteau’s four furry friends are sweet as pie and ready to bake a cake — but for whom? . . . Gentle and full of charm, this is a nice selection for toddlers and very young readers.” — Kirkus Reviews
