Big Bear’s forest friends eye his berries hungrily, but he doesn’t notice as he digs into his delicious snack. When the old oak tree says, "Share, Big Bear, share," he misunderstands and one comical scene follows another until things finally get sorted out. Whimsical illustrations highlight the humor in this gentle story about the importance of sharing something special with friends in this third book in the series.
"Rhyming text and charming colorful illustrations make this an easy go-to for a read-aloud and lessons on sharing." -School Library Journal, 6-29-17
"Hillenbrand's illustrations are the real attraction here. . . full-bleed forest landscapes in pale, textured washes of green and blue make an inviting setting for Bear with his giant silver pail of lush berries and the birds, rabbits, deer, and mice that gather around him, hoping he'll share." -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, 5-17
