The Bear Went Over the Mountain: A sweet book for kids

A bear goes over the mountain to see what he can see, hear what he can hear, smell what he can smell, touch what he can touch, and taste what he can taste; what a busy bear!  When he sets out on a sunny morning in spring he uses all five of his senses to explore the world around him.  He smells a skunk (yuck!) and sweet honeysuckle (yum!).  He sees dragonflies and fuzzy ducklings, he hears crickets chirping, he touches a soft flower blossom, and more!  When the chill of autumn comes creeping up over the mountain, he goes back to his cave for a snuggly sleep.

The Bear Went Over the Mountain is a sweet book that was sent to me for this review.  My 7 1/2 year old daughter enjoys this book and loves to read it to me.

This hardcover book is written and illustrated by the talented, Iza Trapani.  The watercolors throughout the book are so bright, colorful, and beautiful.  I love that this playful book encourages adventure and exploration!  My daughter loves nature, and this book is right up her alley.
