Achoo! Why Pollen Counts
Written by Shennen Bersani

While spring is a beautiful season when flowers bloom and spread their colors worldwide, it can also be a terrible time for anyone with allergies. With the beginning of spring comes the onslaught of pollen, and Baby Bear hates pollen - it sticks to his fur and makes him sneezy.

Though Baby Bear wishes that pollen would go away, his friends teach him why pollen is so important for the environment! Not only is it good for the forest, but it also provides food for many of the animals living there - including Baby Bear.

This story also includes a four-page "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book, as well as a 45-page Teaching Activity Guide online. Not only is "Achoo! Why Pollen Counts" a fun story to share with your children, but it also provides helpful learning materials that teachers and parents can use to extend the lesson!
