A Birthday for Bear

By Bonny Becker
Illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton

“The winning stars of A Visitor for Bear make a return engagement.” — School Library Journal

Bear does not like birthdays. He doesn’t like parties or balloons, cards or candles. In fact, Bear does not like anything to do with birthdays at all. He would much rather spend his birthday alone cleaning his house, but Mouse, small and gray and bright-eyed, has other ideas. With a perfectly paced story by Bonny Becker paired with Kady MacDonald Denton’s slapstick visual comedy, A Birthday for Bear welcomes young listeners to the party with artwork ideal for sharing. Candlewick Sparks are perfect for the newly independent reader: * Award-winning stories by top authors & illustrators * Short, engaging chapters * Vibrant illustrations * Welcoming design * Rich vocabulary

  • Featuring the new Candlewick Sparks logo and branding.
  • Perfect for emerging readers -- especially those who are fans of the Bear and Mouse picture books.
  • Another funny story about the hilariously mismatched and New York Times bestselling pair - grumpy, gruff Bear and the irrepressibly cheerful Mouse.
