Before story time begins, prepare cut-outs of the drawing and additions that appear in this story. I used brown craft paper and cut a simple outline of bear's drawing of his mother. I cut out large circles for the eyes from white paper and drew a black dot in them. Next I cut the circles smaller, keeping the outside cut-away rings to use later. I cut rabbit ears from the brown paper. I cut a sliver of a smile from pink paper and then a huge smile from yellow paper. I cut two pink circle to make ...more

Same story as 'Monkey Face' by Frank Asch, except with bears instead of monkeys. Could be used in an art program on self portraits/perspectives in art.

Perfect story for realizing that your best is just perfect for mom.
Edward Sullivan
Exactly what you'd expect a good mother to say.

I have shared this book with many age groups and get laughs every time. I really feel that the title doesn't represent what the book is about. This story is about creativity, friendship, and a mother's love and acceptance. I found this story in a flannel board form and recreated it. The script that went along with it was titled "Monkey Face". Today I used this flannelboard for our summer reading outdoor Family Story Time with our theme of Friendly Monsters and Lights. Again this story was well r ...more

Funny and cute story

Ben the bear paints a picture of his mother at school. On the way home everyone he meets advises him how to improve it. Owl says the eyes should be bigger. Alligator says the mouth should be bigger. Rabbit says the ears...well, you get the idea.

Great story but personally I'm not all that inspired by Frank Asch's childlike drawings. The story starts and ends with bread and honey but otherwise there's no justification for the title.

This book will teach you some animal names, dominant physical traits of those animals (big eyes, long neck, etc)and most importantly, that mommy loves you (and the things you do)just the way you are!
I have owned this book since I was a child, and have read it to all three of my own children.

I can't help but give this story 5 stars since it's one of the few I remember from my childhood, but it's such a great book! This is a great book that reminds children that mom will love their artwork no matter, because it's theirs! It reminds me of an early version of the book Ish :)

May be more like 4.5 stars but rounding up because the story does an excellent job of teaching some pretty profound ideas to young kids. Definitely a book to discuss after reading it to the little ones.

This was one of my favorite books as a kid! It shows how good art is interpreted differently by different "people" and mom will love it no matter what because you made it and tried your best!
