Bears! Bears! Bears! by Bob Barner

In this deceptively simple book, we are introduced to eight different bears of the world. We discover where they live, what they eat, and much more.

What I thought: I loved it. The text is simple enough for preschoolers to comprehend. The illustrations are great. I love Barner's paper collage style. The bold colors are visually appealing. My favorite illustration is the sloth bears two-page spread. I met several different bears I didn't know. I especially like the spectacled bear. This would be a fun book to use for story time.
