Bears on Chairs by Shirley Parenteau

Calico Bear, Fuzzy Bear, Yellow Bear, and Floppy Bear each have a chair to themselves. They are perfectly content with their chairs until Big Brown Bear comes along. There's no chair for such a BIG bear. The bears work together to find room for Big Brown Bear.

What I Thought: Where was this book when I did teddy bear story time? It's perfect for the preschool crowd. The illustrations are cute. There's no other word for them. They are soft and pastel-colored. I like that this book teaches a lesson about teamwork and sharing.

Story Time Themes: teddy bears, friendship, sharing
