Bears in a Band

author: Shirley Parenteau
illustrator: David Walker

series name:
Bears on Chairs

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

“As charming as Parenteau’s earlier bear books . . . A simple, but important, teachable lesson is incorporated — if we work together, good things can happen.” — School Library Journal
