Rosie Bear Book Review: Big Hungry Bear

bear straw berry 2The Little Mouse, The Big Hungry Bear and the Red Ripe Strawberry, By Don and Audrey Wood

A timid little mouse finds a lovely red ripe strawberry.  Along comes a big hungry bear – is there any other kind?  The mouse tries to hide her strawberry, but the bear is too smart – naturally.  This book is funny and little bit mysterious.  It touches on the concept of greed vs. generosity, with a happy compromise at the end.  Beautifully illustrated, and fun to act out with the cubs.

  1. This is one of my favorite childrens books. Every time I read this to my daughter she laughs out loud at the picture of the strawberry with the nose glasses on.

  2. Thanks Kelly, I love Audrey Wood books. Another good one is the Napping House. (Check out the big hungry bear sandwich at Mama Sprinkles.)

I'd love to hear from you.
