The Bear In Underwear is back, but this time, there's a washing mishap and now he's the Bear in Pink Underwear.
This book is so much fun all around. Young readers will have to pry themselves away from the cover as they don't listen to bear's advice and pull his shorts down with some hilarious paper engineering. And things really heat up when Bear steps on the soccer field. After all, whenever Bear plays, he always wears his lucky underwear. But when they get muddy and Bear has to throw them in the wash, he realizes that his tighty whities aren't white anymore. He's the laughing stock of the field as his friends yell, "Pink is for girls" and "You can't wear pink!" But it's his lucky underwear, so Bear ignores the teasing. With just one minute left on the clock, can Bear's lucky underwear come through and have Bear score the winning goal?
This book is a true testament for anyone who suffers teasing. The message of rising above it all will inspire young readers while it also has them smiling from ear to ear. Maybe they'll even realize, pink doesn't stink!
