Bears Make the Best Reading Buddies
Adelaide goes to a school where the teachers give every child a reading buddy. Adelaide explains that she does not need one, as she already has hers: a big, gigantic bear. The teacher is very scared of the bear. Adelaide explains that her bears love all sorts of stories: mysteries, adventures, fairy tales, no matter the book they sit next to you and read and offer help when you have a hard time reading yourself. And they celebrate with you when you get the word right. Sometimes their claws break the page, but they are quick at fixing mistakes too. And when you are done reading, they go with you on all of the adventures the books made them think of. Adelaide’s teacher is convinced and lets Bear in. Nobody is scared and the other children become interested too. Adelaide and the Bear start reading together in the classroom.
I liked this book. I don’t have a reading buddy in my school, but I do like reading books. Bear was funny when he used honey to patch up the rip in the page!
