Mole, Hare, Mouse, and the rest of the gang are all ready to go out and play. But Bear is sick — really, really sick with a bad cold. Putting aside any thoughts of play, the loyal friends scamper about Bears cave to help him feel as comfortable as possible. Full color. ( )

This is a good example of a picture book/fantasy/fable because it talks about a bear being sick and all his friends taking care of him but it is true in many ways because shows how when being sick it's nice to be taken care of and people are there for you to make you feel better. It's a fun book for children to read because they can relate to it in many ways of being the one who has been sick or being the one who wants to take care of someone they love who is sick.

This story is about a bear that becomes sick, and so his friends take care of him until he is better. But after bear is better, all of his friends get sick, so bear promises to make them feel better. This story has rhymes, and beautifully colored pages. I liked this story because it is about friends taking care of each other. Since the book rhymes, it would be a good book to help younger students learn to read. I would use this book in a first or second grade classroom, probably during cold season, just because my students might feel lie they could relate to it.

Book Summary: This book is about a bear who goes out looking for food because he is hungry. The weather starts to get cold so bear decides to turn back for home but he doesn't make it back home before it gets dark outside. Bear becomes scared. His friends start to worry about bear because he has been gone for a long time and a storm is coming. So bear's friends decide to go out looking for him. Bear perks up when he thinks he hears the voices of some of his friends. When his friends find him they give him a bear hug and this helps to calm bears fears. They all make it home safe and fall asleep.

Personal Reaction: This book is a book about friendship. When you may think your alone, your really not. Friends will always be there to help comfort you when you are feeling lonely or scared.

Classroom Extension: 1) Have students draw a picture of a time they felt scared or alone.
2) Have students write a few sentences of how someone helped them to not be afraid and what that person(s) did to help them feel loved.

"The language, with its strong rhythm, rhyme and repetitive structure, is very appealing and lends itself well to activities that build phonemic awareness. The underlying messages about respecting and valuing others are positive. Furthermore, the stories avoid triteness."
added by cvosshans | editChildren's Literature, Mary Hynes-Berry
"The rhyming text and oft-repeated refrain (Bear Feels Sick) make this book irresistible when read aloud. What more could anyone ask when under the weather than a snug house and plenty of TLC?"
