To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The pages at the beginning are lightly coloured like a lamp to symbolise the safety of the bear’s home, I would discuss this with children and why the pages get darker as the bears go outside. My severe learning difficulties nursery class are reading the book as part of their literacy lessons which they absolutely love. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. For example we have two toy bears that we introduce to them at the beginning of the story who they get to cuddle and get a sense of their two sizes (bigger for big bear etc…), we then give them each a small teddy bear who they cuddle up in a blanket.Described as ‘the most perfect children’s book ever written’, this is a beautiful 25th anniversary edition of the Kate Greenaway-winning story of Little Bear, who just can’t sleep. However, even if you havent had a horrendous and dramatic birth experience it’s still a very sweet and funny book and I highly recommend it as a bedtime story. The story is predictable but very comforting and the illustrations are cozy, expressive, and interesting.

It is an excellent story to use expression when being told, making it an excellent book to engage the child whom it is being read to( eg. It's a great book as a story telling excercise at Early Years, yet is also great for those in the later stages of Key Stage One learning to read, with alot of word asnd phrase repetition for those less confident. Le pagine sono belle e resistenti, anche quelle popup, che in alcuni altri libri invece sembrano essere fragili. A cute idea, but falls short, since it's way too wordy for the younger crowd, even though the concept is geared toward them.

I recently bought this for a friend who is expecting, I hadn't noticed it was a 'pop up' version, so was pleasantly surprised. Described as 'the most perfect children's book ever written', this is a beautiful 25th anniversary edition of the Kate Greenaway-winning story of Little Bear, who just can't sleep.

I will have this on display for sure; if I can't find other things to use, then I will opt to read this one. The illustrations are cute, but otherwise, way too repetitive to not be boring, both my 5 yr old and preschoolers had a hard time staying engaged in this story.

Barbara Firth's illustrations, of course, are stunning and pitched just right for such a soothing tale. My son loves to cuddle up with me under a blanket to share a special moment watching the story before bedtime.
