Bruce the bear likes to keep to himself. That, and eat eggs. But when his hard-boiled goose eggs turn out to be real, live goslings, he starts to lose his appetite. And even worse, the goslings are convinced he's their mother. Bruce tries to get the geese to go south, but he can't seem to rid himself of his new companions. What's a bear to do?

What happens when you get one incredibly grumpy bear, and some goslings? One hilarious story with humor both kids and adults will get. 

What's a grumpy bear to do when he happens to go shopping through the forest for some eggs to cook up, and accidentally gets goose eggs that are about to hatch? Poor Bruce finds himself in quite a predicament when the eggs he was going to cook up and eat, end up hatching, and calling him mom. This hilarious case of mistaken identity leads Bruce on a wild goose chase to rid himself of these adventurous geese. It doesn't take long before these babies grow up to be teens, and Bruce is stuck with the task of taking care of them.

It appears that there's more to this grumpy bear, than his grumpiness. Just don't tell Bruce that you may end up loving his story, and all he does for these geese. He may not like it. This story is down right hilarious! Not to mention the illustrations are adorable. This is one book definitely worth picking up. 

Picture Book Month Kicks Off TODAY! #picturebookmonth

Happy November 1st! This month kicks of PICTURE BOOK MONTH! During the entire month of November, I'll be featuring a variety of picture book reviews and spot lights. Each day during the month of November, a picture book will be featured here on the blog. We're HUGE fans of picture books. I grew up with a love of them, and I've loved reading them to my kids, and enjoy reading them to the younger kids I teach. No matter your age, you're never too old to read a picture book.

If you're a fan of picture books, be sure to join the month long celebration! You can find out more about here. They even have a schedule you can follow, here. Since I have a huge stack of picture books to review, I won't be following the schedule, however, I will be sharing my love for picture books all month long. Join the fun, and be an ambassador of children's picture books. Find out more here

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
