About the Book:
From author-illustrator Ashley Belote comes a hilarious and holiday-themed companion to The Me Tree, the tale of a bear who learned to happily share his space. In this festive follow-up, Christmas visitors quickly put Bear’s patience and hospitality to the test.
Designed to engage early readers, this story combines charming characters with simple text, lively illustrations, and laugh-out-loud humor to help boost kids’ confidence and create lifelong readers!
Bear is back and this time his home, “The We Tree,” is full of holiday cheer… for everyone but Bear. With guests like four flocking birds, three French squirrels, two spruced-up cats, and a partridge in the We Tree, will Bear finally find the holiday spirit?
With full-color illustrations on every page, this humorous story is perfect for kids just beginning to read on their own. The early vocabulary and amusing illustrations make reading easy and fun! Exciting, easy-to-read books are the stepping stone a young reader needs to bridge the gap between being a beginner and being fluent.
