This is one of my favourite read aloud picture books of my kids little days. I used to read and read this book. It is about a bear at day care. When all the kids go outside to play, Ben Bear decides he wants to read. The other toys help him figure out how to spell his name with the letter blocks. It shows the phonetic structure of the basic sounds as Ben and Tiger write their names. It also makes books seem really fun.
The illustrations are bright and beautiful. This is a good hard cover book that has lasted many reads in our house. I am keeping this book it is one that will last the next generations to come.
