To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As a teacher this is a great story for children to learn the concept of saying thank you when being given something from others. A simple story that has great characters and a story line that is simple to follow. For any teachers out there, it is also a great story to do a reenactment with or to make props with for your book corner! A definite keeper!
I am an ESOL teacher who works with Head Start students (4- and 5-year-olds). This is a heartwarming story about a bear who wants to invite his friends to his cave, but when he looks in his cupboard, he discovers that it is empty. Each of his friends brings something to his cave and the bear is sad because he has nothing to offer them. They reassure him that he has stories that he can tell them and that they are happy to be with him. This is a great lesson about the nature of friendship and the concept of thankfulness that is especially appropriate at Thanksgiving.
bought this for our Thanksgiving holiday book collection for my 4 yr old girl. she (and i) loooove this book! the illustrations are soft and lovely and whimsical. the message of friendship and gratitude (and gratitude for our friends wherever they happen to be in life); appreciating not just their material gifts, but their natural gifts, is just a beautiful message all around. It’s message is delivered in a simple, lighthearted, easy to grasp way. i highly recommend. it’s february and we still read it often.
