A charming story about a blossoming friendship between a bear with an itch and a well-meaning beaver who wants to help.
When Bear wakes up from his winter sleep, he discovers an itch. And not just any itch – an unBEARable Grizzly Itch! But when he gets to his favourite scratching tree, it suddenly crashes to the ground. It turns out Beaver likes trees too.
Thankfully, Beaver knows lots of other trees, and promises to help Bear find a new one. But Bear’s itch is getting more grizzly by the minute, and none of the trees Beaver show him are quite right. Maybe it’s not a tree Bear needs, after all?
THE GRIZZLY ITCH is an adorable tale about a Grizzly Bear who wakes up from his long winter sleep only to find that he has an unBEARable itch.
No problem, he thinks, he’ll just wander down to a spot he knows which has the best tree to rub against to get rid of his itch.
To his surprise, a beaver has used his favorite scratching tree in his dam. The beaver and the bear then set out to find a suitable substitute tree.
To bear’s surprise, his itch is finally allevied only through friendship.
This is a great story about not only friendship, but perseverance and problem solving. I highly recommend this lovely and gorgeously illustrated children’s book for ages 3 to 7.
I rate THE GRIZZLY ITCH as 5 OUT OF 5 STARS ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ and think this book would be a great addition to any children’s library as well as every Kindergarten to Grade Two classroom.
