    I was looking in the library catalog for Pavese s El bello verano They hadn t got the Italian novel about adolescent loss of innocence and subsequent disillusionment, and recommended this picture book about a bear eating cake instead.It was a nice book for younger children I didn t especially enjoy it, but I can see it working for a three year old That s probably the right age to enjoy feeling smarter andwith it than the bear protagonist, who falls asleep before blasting off in his rock I was looking in the library catalog for Pavese s El bello verano They hadn t got the Italian novel about adolescent loss of innocence and subsequent disillusionment, and recommended this picture book about a bear eating cake instead.It was a nice book for younger children I didn t especially enjoy it, but I can see it working for a three year old That s probably the right age to enjoy feeling smarter andwith it than the bear protagonist, who falls asleep before blasting off in his rocket ship, wakes to see a white landscape of snow, and thinks he has made it to his lunar destination I admired the bear s dedication he spent months building that spacecraft and was glad that he was pleased with the outcome of his endeavor Maybe the message is, if your friends are happy in their errors, don t disillusion them Since I have not yet read Pavese s novel, I can t say what this story has in common with the one I wanted to order Maybe they both have seasons marked as a key word, or something simplistic like that I ll update if I ever figure it out

    This is a story of the determined, hardworking, and inventive main character named Bear One day Bear and his trusty side kick, Little Bird, were watching the moon when they realized that they were hungry and that is when Bear comes up with the idea to take a bite out of the moon for he thinks it will be delicious After one failed attempt at reaching the moon, Little Bird and Bear decide to build a rocket ship all summer long to help them travel to the moon Bear enters in the rocket ship and This is a story of the determined, hardworking, and inventive main character named Bear One day Bear and his trusty side kick, Little Bird, were watching the moon when they realized that they were hungry and that is when Bear comes up with the idea to take a bite out of the moon for he thinks it will be delicious After one failed attempt at reaching the moon, Little Bird and Bear decide to build a rocket ship all summer long to help them travel to the moon Bear enters in the rocket ship and before taking off falls asleep only to wake up to the ground covered in something he had never seen before, snow Bear believes he made it to the moon and of course has to make a moon cake out of the snow to celebrate Bear returns to Little Bird with a smile upon his face and good news as to how the moon tastes This book contained a central plot where bear wanted to reach the moon so he could take a bite out of it, luckily the ending is resolved and leaves the readers happy and content Bear, the main character, was very believable and brought out the theme of the story that you can do anything as long as you put the work and effort needed into it He showed great persistence and faith throughout the whole story The illustrations in this book depicted what Bear and Little Bird were doing and helped move the story along The illustrations were mainly composed of simple colors so as to not distract from the story, but enough to tell the story, visually, in a simple way

    This picture book was an imaginative story of the bear and the little bird who want to taste the moon so they set out to make a rocket ship to get there When the bear falls asleep in it and wakes up in the snow he thinks he has landed on the moon and tries the snow, which he likes He does not know the difference so he is doing one thinking but thinking another about what he is doing This is a funny little story for young readers who want to follow along their to see how and when their rocket This picture book was an imaginative story of the bear and the little bird who want to taste the moon so they set out to make a rocket ship to get there When the bear falls asleep in it and wakes up in the snow he thinks he has landed on the moon and tries the snow, which he likes He does not know the difference so he is doing one thinking but thinking another about what he is doing This is a funny little story for young readers who want to follow along their to see how and when their rocket ship was made and how the bear got to the moon The illustrations in it are very simplistic, as there are few colors the illustrator uses throughout it However, even though it is very simple, he is sure to have the bear and rocket ship always pop within the page so you can always see where they are within the book This helps children follow along with what the characters are doing

    This book is okay The plot is sufficiently quaint about a bear who wants to go to the moon, but this plot I find to be a bit too cluttered to be sufficiently whimsical for a children s book I don t think it helps that the illustrations are rather pedestrian as well Never mind the fact that the dense wordiness subtracts from the included images, but said images are mainly just flat colors lacking a lot of interesting depth Comboed with the fact that there are multiple instances where assets l This book is okay The plot is sufficiently quaint about a bear who wants to go to the moon, but this plot I find to be a bit too cluttered to be sufficiently whimsical for a children s book I don t think it helps that the illustrations are rather pedestrian as well Never mind the fact that the dense wordiness subtracts from the included images, but said images are mainly just flat colors lacking a lot of interesting depth Comboed with the fact that there are multiple instances where assets like faces are reused, this picture book, while perfectly inoffensive, doesn t really excel in either the textual or illustrative areas
