Frida and Bear

By Anthony Browne, Hanne Bartholin

Learn to play the shape game!

Frida and Bear both love to draw – but what? First, Frida draws a shape. Bear adds to it and turns it into a picture. Then Bear draws a shape for Frida as the game begins again. Anthony Browne and Hanne Bartholin celebrate the power of imagination and the importance of creativity in this delightful picture book that invites the reader to join in and play the shape game with them.
