A Visitor for Bear by Bonny Becker

I thought I'd be silly and share a book, my son and I read last night with enthusiasm. Bear goes to great extremes to discourage visitors. The book jacket describes it a "slapstick comedy of manners." It is a cute book that parents and children alike will enjoy. Repetition is used which is helpful to early or pre-readers. If you are looking for a fun book to enjoy with your little one check your local library for this amusing book.

If your child is up for some discussion you could talk about how the characters might have felt at different times during the story. You could also ask your child what he or she might have done differently if they were bear or mouse. Reading is incredible even at this level :)
