Nothing beats a good story, and A Visitor for Bear is a good story.  Today I read my 1st graders A Visitor for Bear by Bonnie Becker.  I love this story of a mouse and bear that become friends.  My first graders loved it too!  While the book is good, it comes alive during a read-a-loud.

After reading today, I got a round of applause from the class followed by hugs and was told the story was "awesome."  I love reading the E.B. White Read Aloud Winners to my students.  There are typically a lot of voices, and have great pictures.  Earlier, when I said "Nothing beats a good story"--I lied.  Sharing a good story is the best thing of all.

A Visitor for Bear has companion novels that my students are eagerly awaiting to read!
