Every day Bear walks into town and every day he does something different. Mondays are the days he goes to the bakery. On Tuesday he goes to the swimming pool, and on Wednesday he goes to the theatre to see a movie. Thursday is his day to go to the gym to get some exercise. On Friday he goes to the toystore and on Saturday he goes for a walk in the park. Sunday is the day when he plays with his friends in the playground.

This wonderfully colorful board book will soon become a firm favorite with little children who will fall in love with the large brown cheerful looking bear who lives life to the fullest and who clearly has such a wonderful time doing it. Delightful illustrations fill the pages with lively and detailed scenes, and at the end of the book children can explore a map which shows them all the places that Bear visits during the week.

This is just one in a series of books about Bear published by Barefoot books.
