Self-confidence prepares children to face life's challenges. When they feel confident they can make new friends and tackle new opportunities. Part of the process is to learn how to show acceptance and appreciation for others despite their differences. Christine J. Logan promotes these ideas in Because You Care for Beany Bear. Beany is a kind and friendly little black bear. He gradually makes friends with different animals with whom he can coexist and play happily. As he grows up, he finds a partner and demonstrates that there is still enough affection for everyone. The author shares a dynamic story that includes activities such as finding objects in images and this makes for entertaining reading.
I liked Because You Care for Beany Bear. It encourages young readers to develop their creativity. In addition to reading, children have to help Beany Bear find solutions and solve puzzles. This is a highly recommended read because it supports the development of concepts such as social integration and an interest in helping others. All the characters are friendly, sociable, and collaborative, providing a great example to follow. The sentences are short and rhythmic, so little ones can practice reading while they play and learn more about Beany Bear. The illustrations are charming and feature natural landscapes, insects, and animals. Values such as empathy, companionship, and respect are prominent. Christine J. Logan motivates children to interact with others and express their emotions positively.
