In this newest addition to the "Bear" series, we find Bear hard at work as a postman. Follow Bear as he delivers letters, parcels and packages all over town, meeting other bears, all busy working at their different jobs. Children will love the rhyming lines and whimsical rhythm of the story, while learning about the occupations of different bears, among them a librarian, a doctor, a builder and a farmer. Debbie Harter is the illustrator of "The Animal Boogie" (978-1-90523-622-0) (more than 550,000 copies sold), and "Port Side Pirates" (978-1-84686-062-1).

"Bright, appealing illustrations in paint, ink, pencil, and crayon clearly illustrate his busy day. The activity of daily life is quite apparent with colorful flowers in the florist shop window and mouthwatering bread and pastries in the bakery window. This is a useful selection to celebrate community helpers and a delightful title to share in preschool storytime." -- School Library Journal "School Library Journal"
