The Lazy Bear

  • Title: The Lazy Bear
  • Author: Brian Wildsmith
  • Illustrator: Brian Wildsmith
  • Publisher: Harcourt Brace
  • Publication year: 1973
  • Brief Summary: From Amazon-“A normally thoughtful bear becomes lazy and downright unkind after he discovers a wagon to play with.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library –I think much like some of the other books I have covered, this would have merit as a teaching lesson. This books shows consequences of one’s actions, which is important for children to learn. However, again, the year of publication on this makes me wonder if it would be circulating in a school library.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it –I really loved the bright illustrations by Wildsmith. I liked the flowers and foliage that acts as a constant background.
