Just Like Bossy Bear
David Horvath has captured my first grade readers for the past two years with his book: Bossy Bear. My original post is here. This spring Just Like Bossy Bear was published and the kids are happy to have another picture book sequel with his strong minded characters, Bear and now Turtle.
In this second book, Turtle ( Bossy Bear's best friend) has started to follow Bear's lead by acting very bossy. Bossy realizes this and begins to try to set a "good example." This story is a great read aloud and the simple text and pictures are just perfect for handing it over for the kids to enjoy independently. Who doesn't love reading about a bear with some spunk?
