Karma Wilson is one of those children’s book writers who’s wonderfully dependable. You know you can’t go wrong with a Karma Wilson book. “Bear Wants More” is no exception.
This book is perfect for this time of year, when hibernating animals are just starting to re-enter the over-ground world. And of course, they’re hungry after all those months of not eating!
His friends help Bear find lots of yummy food, and he eats and eats, but, you guessed it, he always wants more!
Every rhyming verse in this funny, sweet story ends with the words “But the bear wants more!” To musicalize this refrain, I set it to music. I use my own tune, but “E-I-E-I-O” would work well. A tune that children can sing along with engages preschoolers and makes the bok even more fun.
Very rhythmic and fun to listen to, “Bear Wants More” is also very fitting for early spring.
