Book Review & Giveaway: More Bears!

Baby Brandon's Adventures
Holiday Gift Guide presents...
More Bears!
(A fun storybook for any child!)





Once upon a time there was a story. It was a lovely story with absolutely NO BEARS in it—not a SINGLE BEAR anywhere.

Then one day...MORE BEARS!

KENN NESBITT is possibly the funniest and most sought-after children's poet writing today. His works have been in dozens of school textbooks around the world, as well as national television programs, and numerous children's magazines.  When he's not writing, podcasting, updating his website (poetry4kids.com), or visiting schools sharing his wacky brand of humor with kids across America, Kenn can be found cuddling his collection of stuffed bears. He seriously cannot get enough of bears. Or chickens.

TROY CUMMINGS has been drawing goofy animals pretty much nonstop since kindergarten. His illustrations have appeared in newspapers, in magazines, on websites, on frozen fish stick packages, and in hospital waiting rooms. He hibernates in Greencastle, Indiana, with his wife and cubs.







I think this picture book is funny and entertaining. Even little Brandon enjoyed it. He would laugh when he sees more bears and even yells out "More Bears!" and starts counting them on the page. I really enjoy Kenn Nesbitt's stories. He surely knows how to get children entertained and wanting more.

The story is about an author who is in the process of writing his book and that it does not contain any bears at all. While he was working away, he hears someone shouting "MORE BEARS!" He got very annoyed and decided to put in only one bear, but he hears it again, "More Bears!" It would not stop and more bears are added until the pages were full of bears; so full that he wanted them off the page. Finally in the end, there were no more bears. What a cute story.

The book entitled "My Hippo Has the Hiccups" sounds wonderful. The title brought me back to "Hippo in the Bathtub" song by Anne Murray that we all loved

The book that interests me most is: "My Hippo Has the Hiccups with CD: And Other Poems I Totally Made Up". How fun! and it gets a great rating on amazon.
