A Birthday for Bear by Bonny Becker

Celebrate curmudgeonly Bear and the irrepressible Mouse in this laugh-out-loud companion to the much-loved A Visitor for Bear, A Bedtime for Bear and The Sniffles for Bear. Bear does not like birthdays. He doesn't like parties or balloons, cards or candles. In fact, Bear does not like anything to do with birthdays at all. He would much rather spend his birthday alone cleaning his house, but Mouse, small and grey and bright-eyed, has other ideas. With a perfectly paced story by Bonny Becker paired with Kady MacDonald Denton's slapstick visual comedy, A Birthday for Bear welcomes young listeners to the party in a new Bear and Mouse picture book ideal for sharing.
