This book is a great imaginative adventure book for preschoolers that can take them to so many different places with their imagination. The sing song rhythm of this book even allows for students to repeat back parts that are read aloud and hand motions to be added as part of the story. The story takes the students on a pretend nature trip where they are going to catch a bear. It also teaches them that just like life there are always going to be obstacles you have to overcome. The obstacles in the story lead the reader to a solution allowing for preschoolers to think deeper about solutions to certain problems they come up against.

This predictable book has a huge amount of repetition and is fun for very young children because of the story line but also useful for older children because they can begin match the words to the print in the story. This would be an easy book for using sentence strips Vocabulary includes some excellent adjectives like wavy, oozy, squishy, swirly, whirly, narrow, gloomy and some geographical features words liek rive, cave, forest, as well as the prepositions over, under, around, and through. There are lots of online activities. Beware! Some of the suggested activities have religious overtones, though the book does not. This book would lend itself to a sequencing activity. ( )
