Bear Learns How To Be A Fish


Bear is back and he’s worried! With the help of his new fish friend, Bear discovers that he can cross to the other side of the pond to get his favourite treat–a honey chocolate milkshake! But what will Bear do when he starts to worry about whales and rainstorms and ants in his pants? Join Bear as he learns how to overcome his worries in different situations by taking big breaths in and slowly breathing out. With Jennifer Whelan’s adorable illustrations and Deirdre Brandner’s practical toolkit resource, Bear Learns How To Be A Fish is a fun
adventure through the worries of every day.
