Title: Bear at Work
Author: Stella Blackstone
Illustrator: Debbie Harter
Publisher: Barefoot Books
Concepts: jobs, producers, services
Review: A wonderfully-crafted book for young children, Bear at Work depicts a busy postal-worker bear delivering letters and packages to other bears all over town. These other bears work in a variety of jobs, but they are not too busy to greet the mail carrier and accept their mail. Bright colors and straightforward text make this book a good choice for introducing pre-school age children to basic concepts in economics related to jobs, services, and producers.
