[Children's Book Review] There's A Bear On My Chair by Ross Collins

Book Review of There's A Bear On My Chair by Ross Collins

There's A Bear On My Chair by Ross Collins is an absolutely adorable story about a frustrated mouse, a lazy bear, and just one chair.

I just had to pick this one up for my coworkers baby shower when I saw the polar bear on the cover. And, in my usual fashion, I just had to read it to make sure it was worth giving as a gift! Spoiler: it is!

Let's dive in!

There's A Bear On My Chair by Ross Collins

We do not make a happy pair, a mouse and a bear with just one chair.

My thoughts: 
Oh my goodness this was too cute! I loved the illustrations so much. Just seeing what the bear and mouse were doing on each page was so much fun. This was one of my favorite pages, especially the note on the box:

The story itself was also very cute! The rhyming was fun, and would be great to read out loud. I loved how frustrated the poor mouse got. And the ending was perfect!

I wonder if there will be a second book!

My final thoughts:
I would definitely recommend this one! It would be so fun to read out loud to a child, and I personally don't think the story would get old!

Thanks for reading!
I'm a total sucker for books that feature polar bears; children's books especially! If you have any recommendations that you think I should check out, feel free to mention it in the comments below!
