  1. I thought that Dave’s story was AMAZING! These are the reasons why…
    First my favourite part was when the mommma bear got up onto her hind legs to sniff you! What if you didn’t smell good? What could have happened? It was such a powerful story beacause you had suspense, laughter, and braveness, it was AWSOME! I once met a bear and boy, was it FREAKY! I was in the forest (like you) and a bear just walked by! I froze! I wonder how it felt to have TWO bears RUNNING towards you! It was awesome! Thank you for sharing your story with us!

  2. I enjoyed “The Big Bear Scare” told by David Vegt. My favorite part of the story was when the bear was startled. I liked when he said: “Whoa Bear” and the bear looked over at him. I’ve seen a bear too. It was in a bush and I heard it grunt. I really liked when he panicked. He thought you have to say: “Whoa bear” when you see the bear if he doesn’t see you. I will not forget how funny it was. It was hilarious

  3. My favourite part of the story is when David got scared and accidentally called a bear over. My connection is about bears are my favourite animal. Bears are awesome!!! I enjoyed how he screamed “ho bear ho bear”. He couldn’t think because he got scared Don’t yell at bears

  4. I liked the audio book The Big Bear Scare. My favourite part was him making noise. I liked that part the best because it was funny. I connect my dad to Dave because my dad hunts animals. It’s about them because they both saw a bear. I thought this story was mush like his last one. I think this because they’re both about animals. I learned leave bears alone.

  5. One part of the book that I remember is that when the bears were running toward David. They were sprinting toward David. My dad took a couple of pictures of a black bear and he also told somebody to get to his car because the person was in the bears territory. My dad told someone to get his car and take the photo. David stood on top of a stump and startled the bear when it hadn’t spotted him yet. He startled the bear and it came toward him. I learned that bears are dangerous

  6. I really enjoyed the story, The Big Bear Scare, by David Vegt. My favorite part was when, he was standing on the stump, while yelling at a bear. When that happened, he didn’t know that if you yell at a bear that hasn’t seen you yet, it will either run away or run toward you. I don’t really have that big of a connection with this story. The only connection that I have with it is that I went hiking once and I saw a bear in the distance. I would have probably freaked out so much if I was him! I bet he was really freaked out when that happened, I definitely would have freaked out, and run away. Well one thing I learned was that I will not become a tree planter for a living.

  7. David Vegt a great story teller. My favorite part in Mr.Vegt’s book was when he didn’t get hurt. That part was my favorite part because he has a life to. My connection to Mr.Vegts book is me. I came in mind when he was tree planting because I really like nature and I think he does to. I also liked the part when his friend ran up the hill. I liked that part because he was carrying a big bag of small trees and I think that was really strong of him to do.

  8. David Vegt is a tree planter one day he saw a cinnamon bear whilst he was tree planting and he got startled. My favourite part was when the mama bear went up to David and was smelling him. He said he thought he was going to die but the mama bear just walked away. My connection is that I have seen a bear before and I was startled. My family and I saw a bear but it didn’t see us so we left. David Vegt watched a video about bears and it said if a bear sees you climb a stump and yell or make a loud noise. It also said bears can run 60 miles per hour. I learned that if you stand on a stump and make a loud noise the bear will hopefully run away. I also learned that bears can be friendly to there more interested in berries and fish.

  9. My favourite part of the book was when he planted trees.Then he thought the bear was his friend.My connection to the Living book is that I saw six bears where I was before.And David Vegt saw two bears.My last favourite part was when David Vegt tried to scare the bears away.And he just made it worst for his life.I won’t forget where he tried to scare away the bears.

  10. David taught me new way to deal with bears. My favourite part of the story was the part where David spotted two bears. That time he might feel surprised. When I listened to the story I made a connection to Man V.S Wild. Bear Grills spotted bears somewhere in the world just like David did. David taught me a new way to deal with bears because when I see a bear I would just freeze. He said that instead you can just put your hands up like you are about to surrender. I won’t forget the new way of how to deal with bears.

  11. The Big Bear Scare by David Vegt was a dazzling living library experience. My favourite part of David Vegts experience was when two of the bears surrounded him and he yelled at the bears when they weren’t looking and they charged at him slowly. David didn’t watch the video he was supposed to so he didn’t know he has to yell to get the bears attention when they look at you, but he didn’t watch the video so he stood there scared and stood like a statue. The connection I made was when my brother and I watched a video about the big foot and they thought that a bear was big foot so they yelled and got the bears attention so they panicked. They didn’t know what to do so they ran and the bears chased them and then they hind behind a tree and lost the bear. Last off, when he tried to scare off the bear. He waved his hands in the air and looked back and forth to the mama bear and to the side so the bear would walk away. Today, I learned that if you get assigned to a job to so, read/watch the things you need to do. Also, I will not forget how hilarious the story was!

  12. “The Big Bear Scare,” was a very humorous story. My favorite part of this story was when Dave described what he was saying when he was trying to scare the bear away. I think I enjoyed this part because he was just saying “whoa bear”! Not screaming and becoming the bigger man. Sometimes when I go hiking there are signs that say bears in the area. The whole time I will have my brother walking in front of me and my mom behind me. When Dave told the story I didn’t really hear much about being scared or nervous. If I was in that situation and told the story to people I would go on and on about being scared! From this story I’ve learned that when you see a bear wait until it sees you to become loud and tall or you will just scare it.

  13. I liked the story The Big Bear Scare. My favourite part of the story is when he made him shelf bigger than the bear he stood on a stump. I know that bears are dangerous. They are dangerous because they live in the wild. I think the story was funny. Whan David was standing on the stump. Don’t get a bear angry.

  14. I like The Big Bear Scare. My favourite part is when he survived from all three bears. My connection is I went camping and we saw a bear on the road it was a baby bear and if there is a baby. Then’ there is a momma bear. Anther part I liked is when all three bears ran to him but stop. Something I won’t forget is that funny story.

  15. I thought The Big Bear Scare was funny. My favourite part ot the story was whea daie sew the bear and painiceb. my connection to the story is a time when Iwas scared. My mom a scary mask fav my uncle and my uncle scared me. I also like the part in the story when he saw two bears insteacl of one. I learned to stay away from bears and don’t yell at them.
