I thought this story was really cute. The entire book was a poem about a bear who was hungry. With the help of his friends they were able to feed bear but he always wanted more. As the story goes on we see how each animal tried to help bear eat. At the end of the story they throw bear a surprise party and he eats so much that he goes to sleep. I like the flow of the story and how the author used certain words. This would be a cute book for younger children and it would be easy for them to read. ( )

This reading is about a bear who wakes up from hibernation and is get hungry and thin. His friends in the forest try's to give him food but he stills want more. They throw him a party at his home but the bear has eating so much he can't fit inside his home. All the friends bring the party outside and the bear is full as can be but now all the other animals want more. ( )

When Bear wakes up from hibernation, it is time to eat! His different friends greet him along the way as he travels to find different food. He wants fish and berries and all sorts of things, but nothing seems to be enough. Each new friend he finds has a new idea of where to take Bear to get exactly what he is looking for, but each time, Bear wants more. Finally, Bear's friend decide to make a surprise feast for their hungry friend. Bear is so surprised, thankful and excited that he eats almost every crumb of food until there is nothing left. Finally, Bear doesn't want anything but a nap. But, Bear's friends now want more! ( )

Students really love the characters and can relate to Bear. I love how they help me read the stories by repeating lines with me. ( )

Bear awakens from his den just in time for spring and finds himself very hungry. Bear eats everything in his site, “but he still wants more.” He joins his forest friends on a quest to find more food and finds a surprise waiting at home. Bear’s forest friends attempt to satisfy his enormous hunger and in doing so find themselves in tough situation. This vibrant illustrated book makes for an enchanting read-aloud. The illustrator uses acrylic paint and bright springtime colors to depict spring and the forest animals. The rhythm and boisterous text makes Bear Wants More an amusing read-aloud. ( )

PreS-Gr. 2. What happens after a bear breaks the fast of hibernation? In this rhyming follow-up to Bear Snores On (2002), Bear emerges as a lean, mean, eating machine. His animal friends help him find food, and he munches his way through the forest. As his grub crawl proceeds, both the words of the refrain ("But the bear wants more!") and Bear himself increase in size. Other friends busily plan a party for Bear back at his lair. Later all the friends must work together to pry the overfed, very stuck Bear from the entrance to his den. The story is fun and funny, but it takes a backseat to the illustrations. Chapman's acrylic paintings have a freshly washed look that conveys the newness of spring, and they are layered with delightful comic touches--Bear's increasing girth, his friends' bemused expressions, and the flower crown he wears at his picnic, after which he falls asleep. Now Bear is "full, full, full . . . but . . . his friends want more." An appealing romp about springtime and friendship.
