CLANG! CLANG!TOOTLEY-TOOO! The impossibly cute bears are back — and this time they have musical instruments at the ready.
The little bears pick up their instruments and play a noisy song. They don’t care if the notes are wrong! But uh-oh, Big Brown Bear is fast asleep. Will their lively music wake him up? A small moment of trepidation segues into a jubilant performance in a story that will be sweet music to little ears.
About the Author
Shirley Parenteau is the author of four other books about the Bears, as well as the middle-grade novels Ship of Dolls and Dolls of Hope. She lives in Elk Grove, California.
David Walker has illustrated many children’s books, including the four previous Bears books and the Peep and Ducky books by David Martin. About Bears in a Band, he says, “Cover your ears and imagine the noise, if four small bears had four musical toys!” David Walker lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
This book is as charming as Parenteau’s earlier bear books...A simple, but important, teachable lesson is incorporated—if we work together, good things can happen. A must-have for most preschool collections. —School Library Journal
