The Bear That Wasn't | Frank Tashlin

That feeling when you have to keep repeating to yourself 'everything will be okay, it's a children's book'. 🫣 Something about having your identity challenged or restricted by bureaucracy or workplace is a bit traumatic to read. Oh, and then there's the through line of developed wild space and animals in captivity! 😶‍🌫️The art is wonderful, as is the ending. ♥️

So this blurb is a reason I picked this book⬇️

“This book can be used to teach philosophy to children because it discusses the overall concept of self-identity. Throughout the book, Tashlin describes a process similar to when people do not recognize what is different and unique about certain individuals and they then attach labels to those individuals. “

I realized almost none of my 360 students could recite a nursery rhyme. So I pulled all of my mother geese 😂 and we did some nursery rhyme nibbling. I took this home to study it more carefully as I am obsessed with the Opies. Each page is illustrated by a different artist making this an epic treasure. 🪿 🪿 🪿 🪿 🪿

wanderinglynn That‘s just sad that none could recite a nursery rhyme. And what a cool edition! 2d
mandarchy @wanderinglynn it is and I was/wasn't surprised. Only a handful could remember parts of Hey diddle diddle. Most knew the itsy bitsy spider, but that was it. We were reaing a book that referenced several and the kids had no idea. 1d

Glory for the fleeing of the shadows,
The rising sun.
Glory, children, glory alleluja,
For night is done.

I thought this was going to be “the” Winnie the Pooh book, but it wasn‘t. It was a lot of silly, childish rhymes supposedly from Christopher Robin with a very few with Winnie the Pooh. I liked 11 out of 81 poems/stories.

🌼 Too many to list. I rewatch many favorite movies and film/TV series. Currently rewatching Cobra Kai, Mad Men, Roswell, and The Vampire Diaries. Most rewatched movie lately is probably The Crow.

🌺 Board game - Clue. Video game - The Legend of Zelda and Tetris.

🌹 The story is designed around a game of Chess.

My ideal vacation is one that is free or close to it somewhere cooler than where I am right now but not cold either. I would take like 6 books with me. What they would be would change depending on mood. #two4tuesday
