PreSchool-Grade 2-- A great brown bear falls asleep inside a snack truck and awakes to find himself lost in the big city. A small boy comes to the rescue, helping him search for the bear's home--a place with trees and water. Their quest takes them around the city, and they end their day in the library where they "can find out anything." Success! The bear recognizes a picture of his home; a quick look at a map marks the spot. After a long ride on an outbound bus, boy and bear find themselves among the quiet, towering trees. As the grateful brown fellow disappears into the woods, the boy realizes that he is now lost, and the bear returns to help him find his home.
This is an easy, fun book, would make me cry at the end if I wasn't a cynical old man.
Great beginning book, either as read aloud or for the child to read (AR book level 1.7), there's enough humor for an older child/adult to be entertained; apparently, it takes place in Boston, I think Bostonians will recognize places in the city (author born and lives in the area)
