Where Bear? by Sophy Henn

Where Bear?
Where Bear 2
Where Bear 5
Where Bear 4
Marlow (2 1/12) has made a big switch lately in terms of the books she enjoys. Instead of the simple picture and word books she liked just a few months ago, she now prefers books with a story.  I suppose her attention span has improved a bit and she’s able to stay engaged until the end of the stories now, which is really so fun! I’m enjoying reading with her and observing as she discovers some of our favourite books (some of her current favourites are The Tiger Who Came to Tea , Sick Day for Amos Mcgee , and The Happy Lion ).

This new book, Where Bear? by Sophy Henn, is another one that she really loves. It’s a sweet story about a boy and his bear cub, and how the bear cub grows bigger and bigger and how the boy needs to find somewhere better for the bear to live. But… where bear? The zoo? The circus? The jungle? A cave? It’s a really simple story with the sweetest illustrations (and a cute ending).

“Where Bear?” is available from Amazon (UK and US).

I always enjoy your recommendations for my 2.5 year old daughter! We also love “Breathe” by Scott Magoon–perfect for a curious toddler!

Your book reviews aren’t helping my house detoxing at the moment! I’ve had this one on my list for ages – I may just have to make room for it! Thanks for sharing Courtney xx

If I may ask, what are your plans regarding books for the kids for the coming year of travel?(we have the same dilemma every summer when we leave to Europe to visit our families. Shall we carry them? Shall we buy some in our destination? Shall we download them in our ipad?). Thanks!!

Good luck for upcoming travels. I took a year out 5 years ago and travelled around the world with my husband. It was fantastic, and I fell pregnant at the end of our trip. We hope to take our daughter and son on a similar trip in the next few years. I look forward to reading about all your adventures! May I just ask where you purchased the world globe that your daughter is playing with in the photo you posted? I am looking for one for a birthday present:) xx

My girls (almost 3) favorite book is now ‘Little blue and little yellow’ by Leo Lionni. It’s a classic book and as a teacher myself I love to see she can adore such a simple, abstract book.
