Lima Bear Books Review + Giveaway

My kids are bookworms. They will gladly sit in a pile of books for hours on end “reading” them to each other and making up stories to go along with the pictures. I love reading to them, and watching their imaginations go wild. It’s a trip!

The Lima Bear series is an absolutely adorable set of books. I’ve read both How Back-Back Got His Name and The Megasaurus with my kiddos. They were in love! 

Here’s a bit about How Back-Back Got His Name:

Can you imagine what it would be like to lose you back!!? Well, that is exactly what happens to Plumton, the Opossum. Lima Bear and his clever friends become detectives searching for this missing back. Follow them as they try new and different ways of thinking to solve the mystery. See how they band together to protect each other in times of danger! Will they ever find Plumpton’s back? The message of the story is: The tolerance of difference in others yields benefits.

I loved that this book taught lessons of acceptance, and that in order to solve a problem, you need to work together. The illustrations in this book are so cute, too! Since Micah isn’t reading yet, illustrations are important for him.

The Megasaurus is another Lima Bear book. Here’s a bit about it:

What’s the King of Beandom to do? The tiny, multi-colored bean-shaped bears of Beandom are under attack by a monster. Even the King’s wisest advisors seem unable find a solution. Who will save Beandom? Can an ordinary tiny bear step forward with a plan that works? The message of the story is: Follow your convictions even when others think differently.

Lima Bear returns in this story to solve a big, big problem! I love that this story teaches kids that even though they are small, they can still contribute great solutions and ideas!

You can buy either of these Lima Bear books for $15.95 from either Barnes and Noble or Amazon.

    The cave Monster and The Megasaurus I had my 3 year old sit here as I read the description of each of the three books listed on the lima bear site and she couldn’t choose which she wanted me to read her more…. so we like two best. :)
