The Bear Who Did

by Louise Grieg and Laura Hughes

Copies of this book will be in all classes.

A rollicking rhyming story about two bears, a jar of honey and the consequences of not sharing. When one bear with a very rumbly tummy steals a jar of honey from the other, it sparks a hilarious trail of events that lead to an epic and calamitous conclusion.

Louise Greig's bouncy, rhyming text is reminiscent of Julia Donaldson and perfect for preschoolers who are learning all about how to share. With illustrations packed with energy and humour from Laura Hughes, this delightfully funny bedtime story is perfect for sharing and reading aloud with little ones.
