“Whether listeners or emerging readers, children who are already friends with Dog and Bear will delight in these latest adventures, and those who are new to their escapades have a treat in store.” —School Library Journal
“The simple expressiveness of the friends’ mutual concern and Seeger's inventive use of time and physical space . . . adds to the duo’s magnetism.” —Publishers Weekly
“Young children will love the situations, told in very few words and spacious pictures, drawn with thick black lines and bright colors, that express the friends’ frustrations and bonding.” —Booklist
Each book in the series includes three stories. Select a story from each book for the program. This will give children a good sense of each book. Encourage burgeoning readers to take home the titles to enjoy in their entirety at home.
By reading aloud to the children from the books, you will help explore early literacy skills such as print motivation (the enjoyment of books), print awareness (rules such as text flows from top-to-bottom and left-to-right), and vocabulary (children will recognize many items in Dog and Bear’s world from their own experience, but some words may need an explanation).
The activities, which include songs, recipes, and word play, will aid in the development of narrative skills, letter knowledge, and phonological awareness.
