Preschool Storytime: Brave Bitsy and the Bear

Hi friends! Thanks for joining me at Storytime today. I’m Miss Theresa and I’m here with our friend, Boomer Bear. Today we’re going to read a book about a little rabbit and a big bear called Brave Bitsy and the Bear by Angela MacAllister.

Parent Tip

Sometimes children are reluctant to learn to read because the books chosen for them are not interesting to them. You can solve that problem by helping them search out books that spark their interest or are about things they like – animals, ballet, dinosaurs, fish or whatever! Don’t forget about using nonfiction books, too. Even though they might not be able to read them yet, looking at pictures and learning new facts will help develop a knowledge of how research is used.

I have worked with preschool children for more than 30 years, both as a teacher and as an Outreach Storyteller. I like to cook, tend to my vegetable garden, and make jam and pickles in my spare time. I love cats! If you want a great picture book, I'm happy to help you out.
