Children's Book Review

Thanks to the publisher Simon and Schuster, the new book Bear Finds Eggs by New York Times best selling author Karma Wilson has brought immeasurable joy to our evening family reading time.

My hubbie, as you can see from the photo, had as much fun reading Bear Finds Eggs (2024, Simon and Schuster) as our kids enjoyed listening to him reading to them at storytime at the end of the day. Stay tuned for a @mommyblogexpert Instagram Reel to be published soon featuring this devoted father reading to his little ones.

As a mom, I appreciated its engaging story and charming illustrations by illustrator Jane Chapman who has once again teamed up with the author for the newest title in the beloved Bear book series. The plot this time around centers on Bear and friends who go on a seek-and-find adventure together to help Mama Meadowlark find her lost eggs. This made for a real fun read-aloud experience and provided some great moments for interaction with my kids.

A Book That Appeals to Kids, Parents

The heartwarming gesture of leaving treats for anticipated baby birds created a sweet theme throughout the book celebrating the arrival of Spring making this a heartening story to share. The rhythm and rhyme in the storytelling were ideal for repetitive reading sessions, holding up well to frequent repetitions. Realistic and beautiful illustrations of animals against calming green backgrounds and vibrant flowers sparked curiosity in my children about different species.

While the overall simplicity aligned with a picture book for my two younger kids, the eleventh-book-in-the-series context (the title's target child audience is actually ages 4-8) left them with some minor curiosities about the diverse group of animals and questions about the meadowlark's lost eggs. Nevertheless, the focus on friendship, kindness, helping others, and welcoming new life in springtime remained among the highlights.

Without a doubt, Bear Finds Eggs was a hit for us parents. Similarly, the title also received a resounding seal of approval from each of our children: sons Izzy (age 5) and Ori (age 3), and Arya, our 16 month-old daughter who just started walking. The vibrant pictures and engaging storyline captivated their attention, making it a beloved choice for our family reading time, showcasing its broad appeal on different levels across a range of young children's age groups.
