This giveaway is now closed! The winner is Rebecca White ([email protected]…)!

Authors Tom Weck and Peter Weck, a father-son team, have worked together to fashion entertaining tales drawn from the stories that Tom used to tell Peter when he was a boy. The result is a set of clever, engaging, feel-good books with a solid, practical message that will resonate in childhood and beyond.

We were sent a set of these books to review, and I love their colorful illustrations and  fast-paced stories. In addition, the back of each book contains discussion questions as well as crafts & activities to extend the learning opportunities!

The Lima Bear Stories set includes the following stories:

The Megasaurus: What’s the King of Beandom to do?  The tiny, multi colored bean-shaped bears of Beandom are under attack by a monster. Who will save Beandom? Can the king’s wisest advisors find a solution? Or will the solution come from a tiny, ordinary bear? The take-away message: Follow your convictions even when others think differently.

How Back-Back Got His Name: Can you imagine what it would be like to lose your back? Well, that is exactly what happens to Plumton, the Opossum.  Lima Bear and his clever friends become detectives searching for this missing back.  Follow them as they try new and different ways of thinking to solve the mystery.  See how they band together to protect each other in times of danger!  Will they ever find Plumton’s back?  The take-away message: The tolerance of differences in others yields benefits.

The Cave Monster: Oh no! L. Joe Bean, Lima Bear’s cousin has been captured by the Cave Monster. Lima Bear and his friends enter the dangerous black cave to try to save L. Joe Bean before the Cave Monster attacks.  Will they save L. Joe Bean in time? And will they save themselves? The take-away message: Friends, individually afraid, find courage acting together.
