This book is a great fantasy book because it includes playful text and delightful illustrations that bring the story to life. Young readers would enjoy discovering the special gift Bear has to share and rejoicing in all of the wonderful things we have to be thankful for. It provides great themes such as gratitude, sharing and being thankful. The book contains many different forest animals that can inform children what their physical features are about their habitats. All of the animals bring food to the bear's cave and are talking to one another which is what makes it a fantasy. It can be read to teach about many different themes or just for fun which makes it a great fantasy as well. The rhyming and transitions from page to page makes it a great poem as well.

This would be perfect to share with your students to share during the week before they leave for Thanksgiving break. You can hold a discussion about what everyone is thankful for, write it down on a feather to create a big turkey to be posted in the hallway or classroom. ( )

The friendly, outgoing bear plans to show his appreciation this friends by throwing a great big dinner for them all to get together and enjoy each other's company and show thanks. Everyone invited reassures their attendance by bringing big plates of food for them all to share but Bear comes to a problem where he has nothing to cook or offer for the dinner himself. The illustrations throughout the story of how Bear and his friends find a solution to this problem are fun, and eye-catching, keeping the reader involved in this finding the best solution for their appreciation dinner. It shows children to always be kind and appreciative for everything they have or give including friends and family. ( )
