My mom loved this book as a child. I loved this book, too. I was so excited to see that this book was still available that I am buying it for my 5 month old son and a new copy for his grandma. The illustrations haven't been changed I couldn't be more pleased.

The little boy of this story doesn't know what to give his mother for her birthday and so he consults a number of animals (chicken, sheep, etc.). None of the suggestions suit him until Mr. Bear suggests a precious something no mommie can get enough of from her little boy or girl.

This book was written in 1932 but its message is timeless. If you want a book that reinforces nonmaterial values, one that your child will love and that strengthens parent-child bonds, consider this one. Four generations in our family have met Mr. Bear and the fifth is just about ready to. Five stars, definitely five stars.

My wife loved this book as a small child -- so much so that she made me find it here on Amazon.com. She quotes it frequently, and plans to give it to our nieces and nephews.

This is a childrens classic as far as I am concerned. The pictures are a bit dated, however that only adds to the charm of this book. Danny travels from animal to animal looking for the best present for his mother and everything that is offered by the animals his mother already has. Finally it is suggested he goes and asks Mr. Bear. What a wonderful present Mr. Bear suggests. Wonderful.

This book has been much-loved at our house. My daughter wanted it read to her again and again when she was two or three, so we recorded her little voice saying the animals' names along with mom reading the rest of the story. Now she's in her twenties, and she still remembers what a wonderful book it is and how much fun she had making the tape (back then...)

3 yr old son has enjoyed this story although he was a bit nervous the first several readings when we would get to the bear part. He is old enough to know that one doesn't approach a wild bear in the woods and that the farm animals were right to stay away! However, after he saw how this imaginary story was going to go he now finds it fun. It is a good but subtle review of the items each farm animal gives to people, is a great lesson that the best presents are not material items (although those are nice too!) and is a great excuse for big hugs all around at the end of the story. We especially enjoy this story in the evenings, at bedtime since it ends with hugs. Sweet story about a thoughtful son and a Mother who enjoys her son's hugs!

This was my daughter's favorite book when she was a child and I was so happy to find it for her so she can read it to her grandchildren. It is a timeless classic.

I can recall reading this book to my much younger siblings and then to my own 4 children; now I am reading it

to my grandson. I especially like the way the animals help the little boy find a gift for his mother with the perfect

gift not being something material but just a lovely big hug. What a wonderful message to pass on to a child.
