How Back-Back Got His Name by Thomas Weck and Peter Weck Book Review

How Back-Back Got His Name (The Lima Bear Stories)

How Back-Back Got His Name is a cute story that you can't even predict what happens at the end.  I thought the book length was perfect to read over a couple of nights and included fun characters.  My girls listened intently as I read page by page and laughed at some parts of the story.

The story begins with Lima Bear on a cool autumn morning lying asleep in his walnut-shell bed in the hollow of an oak tree.  Lima Bear, as you might have guessed, looks like a lima bean with his round green belly and short arms and legs.  Awakened by Whistle-Toe, his rabbit friend, Lima Bear learns of the "EEE-mergency!"  Plumpton, the oppossum, their other friend is in trouble as he has lost something...his back!  Read the entire story to find about the adventures they endure while trying to find Plumpton's back.

How Back-Back Got His Name is a story by Thomas Weck and Peter Weck with illustrations by Len DiSalvo.  It's 32 pages of full color artwork (8.5 x 11) and for ages 4 - 8.  I also enjoyed the additional learning and activities page at the end as did my girls, both ages 4 and 8.  The help to further implement good reading habits and more is something I look for in books.  Published by Lima Bear Press and distributed by Atlas Books, it's available online, at bookstores and libraries.

It's a cute story that has a lesson to be learned along with great colorful pictures.  The lessons at the end of the book provides parents and teachers an opportunity to offer additional information to help the children learn and have fun.  Both my girls were captivated by the story.  This is a book that I would recommend.
