Are you a librarian looking for a wonderful book to share with younger children for storytime? A Library Book for Bear is an endearing story about a big bear bear who is stuck in his ways. He promised his friend mouse that he would go to the library with him, but upon arriving at the library Bear feels overwhelmed and refuses to try new things. Then, Bear overhears Storytime and everything changes for Bear!
I have created 6 activities to go along with this story. These activities allow for creativity and can help young children with comprehension.
Bear's Bookshelf - children name books that Bear might like (I made 2 formats for this - one vertical and one horizontal)
Design a Library Card for Bear
Draw and Title Bear's Favorite Book
Create Bookmarks for Bear and Mouse
Simple Book Review
This is perfect for a school librarian who works with young children or a public librarian who is looking to extend storytime or send home an activity.
A Library Book for Bear would also be a very easy lesson to leave for a substitute - just leave the book and the copies and your sub will be ready to go.
