Bear's Big Breakfast by Brett Helquist

Bear's Big Breakfast is a classic read-aloud tale that helps kids identify the letter b and has a funny, unexpected twist at the end.

After a long hibernation, Bear wakes up hungry! But what will he eat? He knows he's craving something with the letter B...Will it be a bark, a bee, a boa ...or something even more surprising?

's read-aloud before naptime. -- School Library Journal (starred review) Praise for BEDTIME FOR BEAR: A winning winter read. -- ALA Booklist Praise for A CHRISTMAS CAROL: The beloved Christmas classic is skillfully adapted for this simplified introduction to the tale.

The whole family will love this one -- Deseret Morning News Praise for A CHRISTMAS CAROL: This interpretation of 'A Christmas Carol'

-- Asheville Citizen-Times Praise for ROGER, THE JOLLY PIRATE: Told with a rhythm and bounce that begs to be read aloud. A rousing and humorous tale. -- School Library Journal Praise for ROGER, THE JOLLY PIRATE: [Helquist's] work is warm and appealing. -- New York Times Book Review
