The Adventurous Big Bold Bear is an ideal story for children. It's interesting and didactic; your loved ones will fall in love at first words. It teaches children the importance of cordial relationships and the art of showing love to both humans and animals. The magical voiceover by Mr. Sam Burns shall win your child's heart.
Ryan, a first grader, brings home a big bold bear from his school for the weekend. In no time, they befriend each other and become inseparable. Ryan names him "BB" out of his love for him. They do fun activities together - from morning till the end of the day. But the fun has just begun!
Their adventure starts from waking up on time to brushing their teeth; from eating a bowl of cereal to reading a book on rhymes; from playing soccer with their friends - a mouse and a lion - to going to the pool at noon; and from going to the bazaar in their car to fishing at their neighborhood pond.
The time comes when "BB" must go, and the separation becomes painful and emotional for both of them. But the way Mr. Pruthi handles the end of the story is amazing!
Would you listen to The Adventurous Big Bold Bear again? Why?
Yes, I will. It is an interesting rhyming book. It teaches children about relationships and respect for our elders - parents and teachers alike.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The favorite character is "BB" - A big bold bear - named as such by Ryan - who spends a long weekend in the company of BB. The bond between the two grows pretty strong, pretty quickly. They do all the activities together - from waking up on time in the morning to brushing their teeth together, from eating a bowl of cereal to reading a book on rhyme; from going to the pool for a swim to fishing at the nearby pond at noon time; from going to bazaar in evening in their car to doing other activities together. Alas, all good things must end...and it is time when BB must leave. And...before BB leaves, he gives Ryan, his brother Nate and other children a piece of advice! Children, can you guess what that piece of advice that was?
