Editorial Reviews

Review

The vocabulary is just right, featuring many of the sight words that kids in kindergarten and first grade are expected to know, and the softly colored cartoon format is appealing.  --Kirkus Reviews

Very young readers will have no trouble following Hayes's gorgeous artwork, and the eager-to-please Patrick sets a good example.  --Publisher's Weekly

The rich vocabulary talks to kids on their own level, but will also gently push their reading abilities. Sure to be a favorite in any kids' collection. --Booklist

Toon Books are a must for your easy reader section and I predict this new series from Geoffrey Hayes will be a classic. Buy two copies. Now! --Jean Little Library Blog

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I grew up reading Patrick Bear stories; unfortunately all the books that I read were from the library...and now that I want to purchase the stories that I read they are out of print and VERY expensive. This "new" Patrick Bear story is cute...It is not a traditional book; it is more of a comic book with a hard cover. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Patrick Bear stories. I also hope that the classics like "Patrick eats his dinner" and "Patrick gets a new coat" get reprinted soon...I really want my daughter to be able to read these books without me having to spend hundreds of dollars on them.

Format: Hardcover
Librarians, Teachers & Parents, here's your chance to get younger readers into the graphic novel craze they all seem to crave. There aren't many in the easy reader format to give to Kindergarteners & 1st graders who are not yet strong readers. Patrick the bear is a spunky, confident character who is finding his way in the world under the watchful eye of his parents. Mom might be a little too watchful in the first story but Patrick strikes out on his own & discovers he can deal with what he encounters. Kids who have to deal with bullies everyday will take comfort in the 2 main stories & how Patrick handles these situations. Mom loosens the lease in the 2nd story & encourages her son to take on the responsibility she gives him.
Please don't shy away from what too many see as comics. Books like this get kids reading & following story lines as well as making the jump to more difficult text.

Format: Hardcover
Patrick in A Teddy Bear's Picnic and Other Stories, Suggested Audience: grades K-2.

Patrick is a spunky, free-spirited, comical little bear who respects his Ma and Daddy, enjoys life, and behaves with the tenacity and curiosity of a real child. In this volume, Patrick has a picnic with Ma, takes a "nap," and deals with the bully named Big Bear. His parents' support, love, and good advice help this small bear to figure out the world. Hayes uses language that is both easy to read and fun. Early readers will enjoy Patrick's blunt manner and silliness. Geoffrey Hayes's Toon Book stories are endearing while his illustrations are fun and absorbing. Patrick's stories will make a happy addition to any child's bookshelf.

Format: Hardcover
Young children on the cusp of reading and those even younger will enjoy this brightly illustrated cartoon book, portraying Patrick, a young bear. Visually stimulating pictures accompany short text. Accentuated words help parents emphasize their reading. The four stories cover topics familiar to young children: a nap, a picnic with Mom, a trip to the bakery and another nap. This book contains a helpful "How to Read" page coaching parents with tips on getting the most from the reading experience.
