Big Brown Bear's Up and Down Dayby David McPhail, David McPhail (Illustrator)
Bear is big and bear is brown and bear lives all alone. But then one day someone comes along who gives him a few tips about the ups and downs of having a friend.
With warmth and a gentle wit, David McPhail brings together two unlikely chums (along with some oatmeal, a windup car, and two very comfy slippers).

This story is great for the adult who shares it with their child--and so rich for the child, too. Maybe it will open the door to sharing about good and not-so-good emotions that we all experience during our days. It also illustrates healthy problem-solving, as well as kindness and thoughtfulness for others, which 3, 4, and 5 year olds must learn.
