A Christmas for Bear by Bonny Becker

Who's Coming To Bear's First Christmas Party?

Bear has never had a real Christmas so he’s decided to host his first Christmas party in this sixth Bear and Mouse book. It turns out his party consists of inviting Mouse. Bear has planned the party with food and even a special reading of a poem. However, Mouse is preoccupied with searching for his present since there isn’t one under the tree. 

Every time bear comes back from the kitchen with some food he’s prepared for the celebration, Mouse is off searching under the bed and in closets for his gift. 

Bear's patience is tested. Will Mouse ruin Christmas?

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me: Nothing.

What I Liked Most: Such a fun book to share with kids. And the illustrations show the emotions both Bear and Mouse are experiencing and add greatly to an already good story.

This would be a great addition to a child's library.
