Unavailable for almost 20 years, a funny easy-reader about responsibility gets a fresh new look! When a little bear forgets to close the door to his house, he encounters a series of unwelcome (and untidy) visitors--including a swarm of flies, an egg-loving skunk, and a moose in s...earch of a bath! This rhymed easy-reader by Robert Lopshire--author of Put Me in the Zoo and I Want to Be Somebody New!--is perfect for beginning readers, and its surprise ending (in which the little bear's mom forgets to shut the door herself--oops!) will leave kids giggling with glee while reinforcing the message that we ALL need to be responsible for our actions. With charming new illustrations by Maria Karipidou, this is the kind of classic, funny Beginner Book with a message that kids, parents, and educators will adore! Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.
