Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson
Karma Wilson’s Bear is not featured in a single story. She’s created a veritable empire out of Bear, with 8 books, many available in special sets or board book editions for the smallest hands. My introduction to Bear was Bear Wants More, no doubt randomly chosen from a Scholastic book order back in the day, but quickly a favorite among my young students. Bear has just woken up from his long winter’s nap and is ravenously hungry (who can’t sympathize with that?) The illustrations by Jane Chapman are adorable. The text is not only rhyming but repeatedly features the title catchphrase, “Bear Wants More,” which little listeners are overjoyed to repeat along with you.
Definitely one for the littles!
