Bear has a great big jar of delicious honey. And he wont share with anyone! But Mouse, Mole, and the Rabbit Brothers are hungry. With a jump, leap, and a roll, they set out across the forest. Can they make it to the honey without that scary bear seeing them?(goodreads summary)
All the animals run and hide while Bear stomps through the forest declaring the jar of honey for himself. He will not share even one drop; but the other creatures are determined to get some of that delicious honey too. While Bear sits and eats from his enormous jar, the others are sneaking up on him with anticipation for some yummy eating as well.
This is a delightful story with big, bold illustrations and large text for easy reading. The forest animals were cute as they worked as a team trying to get some of Bear's honey for themselves. One character, Mole, was exceptionally clumsy and the others were very forgiving which was heart-warming. This will be a fun read aloud and young ones will be surprised at the unexpected twist at the end. I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-6.~
