I Have a Little Problem, Said the Bearby Heinz Janisch, Silke Leffler
The bear has a problem. He asks everyone for help, but no one seems to have time to talk with him. What will it take to get someone listen to him?
Bear has a problem, and everyone he meets offers a solution. The only rub is that no one listens long enough to hear what's really bothering him. As he goes through town, an inventor, a tailor, a hatter, a doctor, and shopkeepers load him down with their remedies. At long last, his true concern-he's afraid of his dark cave-is revealed when he meets a fly who is willing to listen and is looking for a new home. While the story is a little bland, the theme of frustration at not being heard will resonate with young audiences. The charming watercolor illustrations are full of details. This title would work best for one-on-one sharing.-Laura Stanfield, Campbell County Public Library, Ft. Thomas, KY

This is a great book about stopping to listen to those around us. It is great to teach children about asking for help and speaking up about what you ultimately like. My three year old likes the images and she likes the story line.
