Big Bear's forest friends eye his berries hungrily, but he doesn't notice as he digs into his delicious snack. When the old oak tree says, "Share, Big Bear, share," he thinks the tree has said, "Hair, Big Bear, hair!" One comical scene follows another as Big Bear keeps misunderstanding the old oak tree's message until things finally get sorted out. Whimsical illustrations highlight the humor in this gentle story about the importance of sharing something special with friends.

Share, Big Bear, Share! by Maureen Wright, is a simple story about sharing with friends. Big Bear has a huge bucket of berries, and his forest friends would love to share in his bounty. Unfortunately, Bear is oblivious to the desire apparent upon the sweet, earnest faces of the other woodland critters. Repeated reminders to share go unheeded as Bear doesn’t “pay attention like a good bear should”. Young listeners will enjoy the comedic misunderstandings that arise from Bear’s poor listening skills. The repetitive refrain, “Share, Big Bear, Share”, invites preschoolers to actively participate and co-narrate the story at appropriate intervals. Textured, mixed-media illustrations highlight this seasonally appropriate picture book about overcoming greed. The inclusion of layered details invites subsequent readings. Pair this tale of sharing with Bear & Hare—Share! by Emily Gravett for a solid introduction to this topic.

Great for rhyming, phonological awareness, and vocabulary. This one is bound to get some giggles from preschoolers. Cartoony and fun.
