This is David’s latest Brand New Reader collection. It includes: Oh No, No Shorts! - Lick, Lick, Drip, Drip – It’s Snowing – and Limbo, Limbo, and like all of David’s Brand New Readers, they are exactly the kinds of books the experts say children need when they are just starting to read. They are short and funny, with words and pictures that help children reading for the very first time succeed and have fun. In this series sister Bear and Brother Bear and Baby Bear go swimming, play in the snow, eat ice cream and dance the limbo. Three Little Bears has won a 2004 Oppenheimer Golden Portfolio Award.
