LaLa and the Unfair Bear is a picture book about a girl named LaLa, who is friends with a boy named Dennis. Dennis comes over to play for the first time, and both children have stuffed bears. LaLa's bear is named Beary, and Dennis's bear is named Cubby. LaLa is jealous of Cubby because Cubby is bigger than Beary. Cubby can do things Beary can't do. LaLa's mom teaches LaLa about gratitude, to be appreciative, and to find worth in all that she has.
This is a fun book for younger kids. My sister, who is 5 years old, likes for me to read LaLa and the Unfair Bear to her. The pictures are bright and fun, pleasing to see. The lesson in gratitude is also perfect for any kid, as we all sometimes get a bit jealous when we think others have it bettter. This is the third book I've read with LaLa as the main character, and I think it's good for young readers to have consistency in relationship with a character who is learning things readers, too, are learning.
