I enjoyed the particular tale of Baby Bear - the story was fun to follow, the characters were enjoyable and the illustrations were especially entertaining. Definitely worth looking at (again and again)!

This is a cute book with beautiful illustrations.....my grandson liked the pictures more than the story as did I. It's a nice little story of a baby bear that is afraid of the dark so he decides to eat it. As the story progresses the baby bear begins to realize that the dark is important to some animals, even himself. My grandson didn't care for the story that much...I think it was a concept he doesn't understand yet, but probably will in the future. It is a cute little story with lovely illustrations.

Baby Bear does not like the dark and wants to do something about it. It's a quirky story that my 3-year old son keeps on asking to read for bed time. There's a bit of discontinuity in the story and some awkward phrasing (like bats' eyes being designed to see in the dark) but I don't think it will trouble the little readers. The illustrations as well done too so all in all a decent bed-time book

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This wonderfully over-sized book is a delight for curious eyes and a joy for attentive ears. The font is extremely large and allows a child to follow along with the reader. Likewise, the illustrations are soft and enchanting. Now, initially, I thought the artwork was just a little dark, but I was entirely mistaken. The book becomes increasingly "brighter" as Baby Bear chomps on the night (much like a puppy would tear at a favorite blanket). It is a fabulous progression. Clever, indeed!

The story itself is entirely innocuous. I know that it is currently difficult to find children's books without an "agenda" afoot. (This is fine concerning texts for older children, but seems ill-suited for young ones). No worries ... this story is exactly as adorable as it seems.

Do not hesitate to add this book to your child's library. It is beautiful and entirely family oriented. Lovely!

I like the illustrations in this book very much. The pictures capture small details of infants behaviour (like the way they "eat" a piece of cloth, or crawl) which I am sure every parent will recognise, and which make the pictures especially cute. It is one of the first books we read to our six months old. The electronic version of the book won't work on ipad ios versions before 6.0.

Thank you for making this book. My 3 year old liked it, he is afraid of the cubby holes in his room at night and not the dark, lol that is what he says anyways. This book would be good for little children who are afraid of the dark.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The four-year-old to whom I read this really enjoyed the story and the illustrations. She found the concept of Baby Bear eating the night entirely ludicrous and giggled afresh at the notion on every page. I'm not docking the story for that, though - the point is, she enjoyed it. And whether a child finds the idea mystical and amazing or absurd, if it helps demystify darkness and reduce some of the tension about bed time, all the better.

My one real quibble with the story is in the point where Baby Bear apologizes for being afraid. This took me a bit aback and is not a concept that I want to introduce to any children, who need to understand that fear is not only normal (and not a shameful thing), but actually USEFUL if properly managed. Fear is our way of telling ourselves to be careful, and while we need to learn to conquer fear when investigation shows that a situation is not dangerous, we don't want to demonize it altogether.

I note that another reviewer (G. Dawson) expressed some concerns that this book might introduce the fear of the dark to a child who didn't previously have it. This isn't an experience we shared, but I thought it was a good enough point to mention it here. This book is probably best for those who are already scared of the dark, or who are old enough to at least know that some children are.

The illustrations are really lovely. Baby Bear is very relatable and cuddly, and there are many elements to explore in almost every picture.
