A Story for Small Bear (Pre-K - Grade 1)

Join award-winning author Alice B McGinty and Small Bear puppet, as they read A Story for Small Bear (Kirkus Reviews Best of 2020, Amazon Best Book of the Month, Random House/Schwartz and Wade, 2020, illustrated by Richard Jones), sing the interactive Small Bear song, and teach participants a special “finishing song,” so they can help Small Bear transition from one activity to the next without dillies or dallies.


Thank you for a wonderful and engaging program! I had SO MUCH fun (I've been singing your songs all day!) and I know the participants did too! – Krissy Short, Children’s Librarian, Peoria Heights Public Library
