David Biedrzycki‘s Bears to the Rescue (2016, Charlesbridge) is a fun picture book about bears who are intent on fighting crime at a carnival. Young kids will enjoy the book’s humor and exaggerated illustrations, which showcase a news broadcast.
Here are 7 aspects of the book I liked:
- the newscast aspect
- the characters’ voices
- the book’s graphics
- the humor
- it’s a good guy v. bad guys story – with a furry twist
- the speech bubble narration style
- it’s part of Biedrzycki’s Breaking News series
