What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

All the students in the class are assigned reading buddies, except for Adelaide. She already has one, a bear! And Adelaide is quite persuasive as she explains to her language arts teacher, Mrs. Fitz-Pea, and the reader, that bears really do make the best reading buddies: they sniff out good books and their claws are just right for turning pages. And the bear looks rather friendly (and studious) in these crayon-bright, contemporary illustrations, making this is must-read picture book for story time!

4.75 / 7.0

In this picture book, a little girl arrives to school with her favorite reading buddy–a bear! You might wonder why a bear makes the best reading buddy, but she’ll explain everything as you read the book. :) The illustrations are fun, and the suggestions in the story for what makes a great reading buddy are a great encouragement to reading.
