The Tree That Bear Climbed Written by Marianne Berkes and Illustrated by Kathleen Rietz. Found at Sylvan Dell Publishing

A Chain of Events Story With A Twist!

The Tree That Bear Climbed is a creative twist on the classic tale, The House that Jack Built. Young listeners and early readers will love the rhythmic repetition as they learn about the many parts of a tree. Beginning with the roots that anchor the tree, this cumulative verse story climbs to a surprise ending. It kept my son’s interest from beginning to end! Why is bear so eager to climb the tree and what happens when he gets to the top? Kate Rietz’s vivid and detailed illustrations will enthrall children of all ages. (Ages 3-8) I also loved the For Creative Minds at the end of the book with interesting things like ‘How Plants and Animals Interact.’ For more information (and to buy the book), check out Sylvan Dell Publishing.
