About the Book
This beautiful and engaging story, the first in the Bob the Bear series, is written by a former Kindergarten manager and teacher specifically to appeal to pre-schoolers. Bob the Bear’s Adventures is a fabulous way to engage with young children, inspire them to play, and offers so many opportunities to entertain, educate and explore! With photos bringing the story to life, children will enjoy being read this story by teachers, carers, parents and loved ones.
Bob the Bear tries to hide in Alice’s garden but is always discovered… and seems to love climbing more than hiding! Please join Bob the Bear on his hiding expeditions and see if you can find him! He is sure to bring a smile and a giggle for both little ones and big ones when playing hide and seek.
‘Bob the Bear’s Adventures’ is a lovely little book that was very much enjoyed by my toddler. As ‘Hide and Seek’ is one of my little ones favourite games, she really enjoyed finding Bob the Bear in the photographs, many of which made her laugh as his hiding places are not always the best. The story itself is told through the dialogue between Alice and Bob, although I felt that once you had read it through the pictures themselves provided lots of talking points. So when we read it for the second time we just spoke about the images. We read this story just before bed but I will most certainly read it again during the day as I feel it is a story my daughter would like to recreate in the garden with her own teddy bear.
The book reminded me of the diary I used to have for our class teddy when I taught in the early years therefore I could see many children relating to it, especially preschool children.
A lovely story which will effectively engage young children and promote discussion. I look forward to seeing where Bob goes next on his adventures.
