This book is so wonderful for little kids. The theme of sharing is hidden inside this hilarious story of a little mouse who is trying to hide his strawberry from a big hungry bear. The pictures are inventive and convey the story behind the words that were written. For example, when the mouse is trying to disguise the strawberry and so he gives it glasses and a mustache. It's pictures like that that would cause children to laugh and enjoy the story even more. Of course the story has a happy ending, both the narrator and the mouse get to have some of the strawberry, thus ensuring the bear will not take it. ( )

I love this book, my mom used to read it to me when I was a kid. It is about a mouse that picks a red ripe strawberry and then finds out that the big hungry bear loves freshly picked strawberries. Then the mouse goes about hiding, guarding, and disguising the strawberry to keep it away from the bear. The resolution to the problem is that the mouse eats the strawberry. Sharing 1/2 with the reader and eating the other 1/2. I would love to read this to my kindergarten class some day. it is appropriate for early readers kindergarten readers. ( )

This is a good book for a young class of students. This book is about a mouse who picks a big ripe strawberry and is afraid the big hungry bear is going to come steal it from him. Throughout the book the mouse is trying to figure about a way to hide or disguise the strawberry. He finally decided to cut it in half and eat it so the bear hungry bear never had a chance at the strawberry. This book would be good to let your students predict what might happen to the mouse and the strawberry. This also have really god pictures that can help the students stay engaged. This is just a very enjoyable book for students. ( )

This book can be used for kindergarten through 1st grade as a fun interactive read-aloud. The book uses repetitive language such as, "BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!" that makes the book more fun for younger students. The way the book is written with the point of view makes it easier for students to feel more involved with the book. While reading to the students the teacher can ask and answer questions such as asking "What do you think the word ripe means? A ripe strawberry...hmm.. What could that be?". Also answering questions about the bear and trying to help students understand that there is not actually a bear. This will help teachers see students comprehension skills. Also, the illustrations are great in this book and will be greatly appreciated by students.

The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear is about a mouse that finds a wonderfully ripe strawberry and tries to hide it before a bear comes to take it. The mouse is told that bears absolutely love big red ripe strawberries and that the bear will be there soon to steal the strawberry. The mouse tries many different things to try to hide the strawberry, but none of the methods seem to be effective. In the end, the mouse decides to cut the strawberry in half so the bear can share the tasty fruit.

I love this book because of the story that it tells through combining words and illustrations. The pictures in this book are crucial to getting the impact of the story and draw the reader in to feel like they are a part of the events. I love the creativity of the mouse in trying to hide the strawberry in all these different ways and I love that in the end he decides that sharing is the best option.

This book could be used as a reading tool for young learners. The book uses a variety of literary devices like onomatopoeia which could be brought in to a lesson. This book could also be used to demonstrate the power of illustrations, and students could work on their own illustrations that go along with a text. ( )
