PreS- Bear is back and this time he is a postal worker. The day begins as he packs his sack with letters and packages. He walks through town stopping for deliveries at the florist and the baker, the corner newsstand and the library. He goes house to house, stopping for a break at the café, and then goes to the school, a nearby farm, and the hospital. After a long day, Bear relaxes in front of a fire. Bright, appealing illustrations in paint, ink, pencil, and crayon clearly illustrate his busy day. The activity of daily life is quite apparent with colorful flowers in the florist shop window and mouthwatering bread and pastries in the bakery window. This is a useful selection to celebrate community helpers and a delightful title to share in preschool storytime.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
Bear at Workby Stella Blackstone, Debbie Harter
Head off to work with Bear as he delivers mail and learns about other professions. Rhythm and rhyme drive the clever text, and a full-spread illustration of the professions at the end reinforces the learning and invites readers to go back through the story to spot the different working bears.
