Storytime with Bears features videos of authors and others reading stories about bears. Includes free printables for children.

Storytime Fun with Bears –

Today, rather than highlighting new books or books about a particular theme, we thought we would share videos of authors and an illustrator reading their picture books featuring bears. It is terrific to see their enthusiasm and personalities shine as they share these outstanding stories and share storytime fun with bears.

We hope this will be a helpful resource for families who don’t have access to these picture books at home or at their public library.
