We just finished reading this book about a bear who liked to stare. The curious bear just wants to make friends, but he keeps scaring them off with his uncomfortable staring. The bear doesn’t mean to be rude. He is just shy and soon learns from a green frog that staring isn’t polite and that a smile is a much better way to make friends.
We made a small stop-motion of The Bear Who Stared using painted cutout pieces of paper that eventually form the bear character. You can also download the printable so the kids can colour and cut out the shapes to make the paper bear character themselves.
