A bear in search of his hat forgets one very important detail as he searches all through this book written by Jon Klassen. This book has humorous illustrations to go with the cute and fun story. Children of younger ages will love this and even the older age elementary kids may get a kick out of it. ( )

This book is simply brilliant. Its simplicity in word usage as well as simple illustrations does not take away from the sheer brilliance that this book portrays. The book appealed to my inner comedian with a cute tale of a bear just asking for closure on the whereabouts of his beloved hat. A good read for all ages. ( )

Genre: Fantasy
Review: This book is about a bear who lost his hat and looks for it by asking many other animals if they have seen the hat. He asks the rabbit, who has his hat, but does not realize it and moves on. Later, the bear remembers that the rabbit had the hat and gets it back. I enjoyed this book because it is simple and a little strange, but I think it is funny and is a great attention-grabber. I would like to have this book in my classroom for students to read.
Uses: This book could be used as a mentor text for making predictions or inferences, using graphic features, or it could just be read for fun. However, I think it would make a good mentor text.

This book is about a bear who lost his hat. He was determined that he was going to find his hat so he set out on a search. He asked all the forest animals if they had seen his hat anywhere. He even asked the rabbit that had his hat on his head but did not realize it at the time. After a while the bear remembers seeing his hat and he traced it back to the rabbit. He then gets the hat back from the rabbit. This is a very good book for young children. It is something that will keep them engaged and wondering where the hat went. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763655988, Hardcover)

A picture-book delight by a rising talent tells a cumulative tale with a mischievous twist.

The bear s hat is gone, and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no, some more elaborately than others. But just as the bear begins to despond, a deer comes by and asks a simple question that sparks the bear s memory and renews his search with a vengeance. Told completely in dialogue, this delicious take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humor and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke.

A bear almost gives up his search for his missing hat until he remembers something important.
