Big Brown Bear
David McPhail, John O'Connor
(Green Light Readers, July 1, 2003)
Bear is very big, very brown, and very busy. His tree house could use a little sprucing up, so Bear heads up the ladder with a plan and a bucket of paint. But Little Bear has a plan, too--including a little mischief that brings Bear (and his blue paint tumbling down to earth. With gentle rhymes and humor, award-winning author and illustrator David McPhail creates a cheery and bumptious bear hug of a story.
