I love how this story starts out with the bear thinking so highly of himself, then loses that self-appreciation, only to realize in the end that being one's self is the very best way to be.

This is a very fun book about a bear who believes that he is terrific. Though it is good to have a high self esteem this little bear quickly learns that being prideful or bossy doesn't get very far. But he discovers that he gains more by recognizing others who are also terrific and encourages individual recognition though golden stars. This is a very cute book that could be used in the classroom to demonstrate rewards systems or classroom management.
This book was one of the first I remember reading with my grandma. It's all about a young bear and how he's terrific at being good. But no one likes someone who is perfect so he decides to change his way and become bad. And I'll leave it at that. I love the illustrations and I hope more kids realize how terrific they are.
