Bear's Big Breakfast by Brett Helquist


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. It's from the author of Shark Kiss, Octopus Hug, Lynn Rowe Reed, and the bestselling, acclaimed illustrator of the Series of Unfortunate Events books, Brett Helquist. 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?
