We can all agree that teddy bears mean something special to children and even adults. If you are a fun book-loving family, then bear books are perfect for enticing your children to love books. Your kids will spend their time learning more about these adorable animals and their habitats, not to mention their literacy and attention skills will be highly improved.
These bear books will also boost your children’s comprehension skills; by reading together every day, you might ask them what they have learned and what the story was about: who was in the story? What was your favorite scene? Also, your child will be able to learn and differentiate colors at an early stage; these books are filled with different bright colors to maintain your child’s interest and attention. Besides, when you read the book aloud while making different sounds for different animal characters, this can foster children’s vocal development.
A clever tale that will charm book lovers
Brother Hugo can’t return his library book — the letters of St. Augustine — because, it turns out, the precious book has been devoured by a bear! Instructed by the abbot to borrow another monastery’s copy and create a replacement, the hapless monk painstakingly crafts a new book, copying it letter by letter and line by line. But when he sets off to return the borrowed copy, he finds himself trailed by his hungry new friend. Once a bear has a taste of letters, it appears, he’s rarely satisfied!
Brother Hugo and the Bear is loosely based on a note found in a twelfth- century manuscript — and largely on the creative imaginings of author Katy Beebe. Lavishly illustrated by S. D. Schindler in the style of medieval manuscripts, this humorous tale is sure to delight readers who have acquired their own taste for books. Click here to buy book
