Bears on Chairs

Shirley Parenteau
Illustrated by David Walker

Sometimes sharing is not so easy to do. Four small bears, Calico, Fuzzy, Yellow, and Floppy, each have their own small chair. These chairs were made for small bears not for big bears. Which was just fine … until Big Brown Bear came along, who also wanted to sit on a small bear chair. The small bears tried to share a small chair with Big Brown Bear, but there just was not enough room for both of them. Big Brown Bear was so sad. He just wanted to sit on a chair too, but one small chair was not big enough for him. The four small bears got together and had a great idea – one that would make Big Brown Bear happy. Their idea was not just about making Big Brown Bear happy, but all five of the bears were happy, and the all learned a lesson in sharing.

This charming book with sweet pastel acrylic illustrations tells a wonderful story of sharing on a level that even preschool children will understand.
