Summer Reading Day 59: Our pick for today was Good Luck Bear by Greg Foley, an adorable book in both story and art. Bear is told by his friend Mouse that finding a four-leaf clover means that you are lucky, so Bear sets out to find one. He runs into many creatures who provide him with very little to no help, but he sticks with his search, and his sole helpful and supportive friend in Mouse, so that he can be a “good luck bear.”
This is a great little story, a time-old tale told in a very enjoyable way. As I mentioned, the illustrations are darling, and the colors are fun and engaging. The length is perfect for a baby bookworm, as is the way the story is written (this is a book that was MADE to be read aloud). We loved it!
