Librarian Laurie Loudenslager recommends Little Bear written by Else Holmelund Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak.
I first read this book as a little girl and now my daughter has a copy.
There are four short stories about Little Bear’s adventures, from playing in the snow to his birthday party with friends: Hen, Duck, and Cat.
In the former, the friends all make birthday soup together. In the subsequent story they go to the moon. The last story in the series about about little bear’s wishes.
The illustrations by Maurice Sendak is wonderful.
This is an “I can read book.”
I recommend this book to all.
