Bookclub Guide

The Dog and Bear books by Laura Vaccaro Seeger are great read-aloud, read-along, and read-with-a-friend books. They also provide a good basis for a program to help children develop early literacy skills.Each book in the series includes three stories. Select a story from each book for the program. This will give children a good sense of each book. Encourage burgeoning readers to take home the titles to enjoy in their entirety at home.By reading aloud to the children from the books, you will help explore early literacy skills such as print motivation (the enjoyment of books), print awareness (rules such as text flows from top-to-bottom and left-to-right), and vocabulary (children will recognize many items in Dog and Bear's world from their own experience, but some words may need an explanation).The activities, which include songs, recipes, and word play, will aid in the development of narrative skills, letter knowledge, and phonological awareness. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Laura Vaccaro Seeger is the New York Times bestselling author/illustrator of the Dog and Bear series and recipient of a Caldecott Honor and a Geisel Honor for First the Egg.

Editorial Reviews

"Told with simplicity and charm, this story is appropriate for sharing aloud or for newly confident readers." -School Library Journal"In three brief stories the reader quickly becomes attached to Dog and Bear, and feels their connection . . . . As in all successful friendship stories, the balance keeps shifting between the two, with Dog and Bear taking turns being the friend-in-need and the friend indeed; and each story comes to a small, satisfying finish." -Starred, Horn Book
