I liked this book because it is about being new and different in a strange place. It is about accepting someone that is new and becoming friends with them. This is a good book for teaching children about how scary being different can be, while teaching them about acceptance and kindness. ( )

Bear’s New Friend
By Karma Wilson (2009)

I liked Bear’s New Friend by Karma Wilson for three reasons. First, I liked Wilson’s ability to rhyme throughout the book. For example, “…there’s a clatter in the tree! Oh, what could it be?” Tree and be rhyme. In addition, “Who’s hiding up there? Perhaps it is the Hare?” There and hare rhyme. Thus, readers can see Wilson’s talent within her writing. The second thing I liked was the repetition present in the story. Specifically, Wilson repeats the phrase, “And the bear asks, 'Who'?” five times. By repeating this phrase, readers can clearly understand how curious the bear is to find out who is making noises. Finally, I liked how Wilson introduced readers to strange animals, for instance, a hare, gopher, mole, badger, raven, and a wren. In my opinion, the animals presented are not children’s ‘favorites,’ so this book expands reader’s knowledge about animals. Overall, the “big idea” of Bear’s New Friend is to keep your mind open, and welcome new friends, regardless of the circumstances. ( )

Another character joins the Bear crew. Now it's an owl, a shy owl. If you've been reading the other books, this one would be appealing too. ( )
