Bears Make the Best Writing Buddies by Carmen Oliver

Rating: 4 out of 5.

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: The idea of helping children understand how to write something is great. I loved the tips that are given in this book and I loved the support that the bear can give to the child trying to write.

How I Felt: Bears Make the Best Writing Buddy is a book marketed to children, and yet I felt that it was really for an adult writer. It spoke of writer’s block, which I don’t think that a young child understands and deals with. The book had a cute concept with the bear being the support for the writer, but I’m just not sure how helpful it is for a child. The book overall kept my daughter interested however, and she loved the illustrations. This is the third book in a series of “Bears Make the Best…” and I would like to check out the other books.

Bears Make the Best Reading Buddies by Carmen Oliver

All the students in the class are assigned reading buddies. Except for Adelaide. She already has one. A bear! And Adelaide is quite persuasive as she explains to her language arts teacher, Mrs. Fitz-Pea, and the reader, that bears really do make the best reading buddies. They sniff out good books. Their claws are just right for turning pages.

Amazon * Goodreads

To Read or Not To Read: This is a good book for schools. I think that a teacher working on a writing segment would enjoy reading this to the class. It would get them excited to write.
