Bear Make Den by Jane Godwin & Michael Wagner
Published by Allen & Unwin
This delightful picture is written and illustrated by a great team. I am a fan of Andrew Joyner’s illustrations and in this book they are partnered with a simple but fun story. A great read aloud or for a child learning to read.
The story begins with ‘Bear make den.’ The story builds as the den needs more and more additions. The simplistic nature of the story allows for each page to build the momentum with few words and fun pictures.
I love the rusty brown colour that Bear has been drawn with as it makes him stand out in each picture no matter what colours are around him. He has the most amazing facial expressions as he continues to realise what his den needs. He is a bear of many talents, able to sew, build, read, cook and play.
Finally at the end, he realises what his den really needs..... I’m not going to tell you, it won’t take long for you to read it and find out!
