Bear's New Friend by Karma Wilson


Bear's New Friend by Karma Wilson

It's summertime - and very hot - so Bear heads out to the swimming hole in the woods to meet his friends. Someone is making a clatter in the tree, but it isn't Mouse, or Hare, or Badger...Who could it be? The mystery animal hurries down a tunnel and stays underground, not responding to Bear's calls of Who? All is revealed when Bear's new friend finally appears (you'll never guess Hoo !), recovered from his bout of shyness. Now all the animals can splash around in the swimming hole together!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
