Description

On the heels of Bear Is Not Tired comes a delicious new story of a big bear with an even bigger sweet toothperfect for fans of Karma Wilson’s Bear Wants More.
 
When Bear discovers jam for the time, he can’t think of anything else. Mama Duck tells him that growing bears need to eat their vegetables first . . . but Bear can’t stand the strange green things on his plate. He only wants jam! It’s not until Bear notices the little ducks around him eating ALL of their food, that it finally clicks: Bear can have his dinner and his jam. This tender follow-up to Bear Is Not Tired will hit home with every family of finicky eaters.
