Preschool Storytime: The Three Snow Bears

Welcome to Preschool Storytime with Miss Rhonda! Today, Boomer wants to introduce you to his polar bear cousins who live way up north. The Three Snow Bears is written and illustrated by one of my favorite authors Jan Brett.

Kindergarten Readiness Tip

After reading The Three Snow Bears read a traditional Goldilocks and the Three Bears book. Ask your child to find things that are the same about both books and things that are different. For now it’s a fun game. In elementary school they will learn about Venn Diagrams and how to compare and contrast. Exposing them to this exercise now will strengthen their ability to focus on the details of a story.

Here is a Venn diagram you can help them fill in with words/drawings. Details that are in both books go in the middle overlapping space. Each book’s unique details can be listed in the outer spaces. See if your child can come up with 3 for each space.

I am an Outreach Preschool Storyteller at the library. I'm usually out and about, visiting preschools and daycares in our community. It's the perfect job for a retired kindergarten teacher! I know what preschoolers need to be ready for school and I love sharing picture books, rhymes and fun music. It's a win for us both!
