This season's choice is a laugh-out-loud read-aloud. Bear doesn't like visitors. He's put up a sign to keep them away. But a persistent mouse arrives at his door one day and simply will not leave. Young listeners will howl as Bear finds him popping up at unexpected places. The language alone would be reason enough for this choice, but the paintings of the tiny mouse standing up to the enormous bear adds to the fun. Children will cheer at the end. Ages 3-6
