Follow-up to the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller A VISITOR FOR BEAR

Bear does not like birthdays. He doesn't like parties or balloons, cards or candles. In fact, Bear does not like anything to do with birthdays at all. He would much rather spend his birthday alone cleaning his house, but Mouse, small and gray and bright-eyed, has other ideas. With a perfectly paced story by Bonny Becker paired with Kady MacDonald Denton's slapstick visual comedy, A Birthday for Bear -- previously published as a first reader -- welcomes young listeners to the party in a new picture-book format, with all new artwork, ideal for sharing.

A charming and well-illustrated tale of a shy but mischievous mouse who tries repeatedly to celebrate the birthday of his grumpy friend, Bear. The writing is lovely and the watercolour and ink illustrations of the characters combine to make the reader want to read the story over and over.
