Don't Worry Bear by Greg Foley

Before reading the book talk about caterpillars and how they grow. Ask questions to see what the children already know.Read the title, Don't Worry Bear, and tell the group that these words are repeated throughout the book. Let's say them all together, "Don't worry, bear." The caterpillar keeps saying "Don't worry, bear," and you will say it each time. Let's try it. Read the book Don't Worry Bear by Greg Foley. Early Literacy Aside--Example: Having the children repeat a phrase in the book is the beginning of developing your children's narrative skills. The next step is to have your child retell the story to you. This later helps with your child understanding what he will read when he gets to school.
