Due to Mouse's persistence, Bear's attitude towards visitors changes in the delightful read-aloud A Visitor for Bear. Kindergartners and first graders love to watch where mouse will turn up next. Kids identify with Bear's gradual warming and Mouse's perseverance. Friendship, after all, can require our flexibility. ( )

Award winning series
My 4 and 7-year-old daughters both love this series. I would definitely recommend these for every elementary library for the early grades, K-2.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763628077, Hardcover)

Cheery persistence wears down a curmudgeonly bear in a wry comedy of manners that ends in a most unlikely friendship.

Bear is quite sure he doesn’t like visitors. He even has a sign. So when a mouse taps on his door one day, Bear tells him to leave. But when Bear goes to the cupboard to get a bowl, there is the mouse — small and gray and bright-eyed. In this slapstick tale that begs to be read aloud, all Bear wants is to eat his breakfast in peace, but the mouse — who keeps popping up in the most unexpected places — just won’t go away!
