The negative reviews for this book all detail the "absurdity" and "offensive nature" of this book. People complain that the book left their child (and sibling-to-be) confused about the upcoming birth. One of the reviewers even asked "What universe is this book from?" Yes, this book is written in another universe: it's written in a universe where bears wear overalls and moo moos! These people need to be reading something from "What to Expect When Mommy's Expecting and You Want Your Two-Year-Old To Experience The Miracle of Childbirth."
This is a nice children's book, which has more to do with Small Bear adjusting to life as a big brother and not being an only-child (or an only-cub in this case). If the former is what you're looking for, I highly recommend "The Berenstain Bears Meet The Birds & The Bees."
Relax and enjoy the book.
This story didn't focus as much on the aspect of the new baby - rather, it talked about Brother Bear (called Small Bear in this book, which was confusing) getting too big for his bed. Papa Bear makes him a new one so that the smaller bed can go to the new baby. Brother doesn't learn about the new baby until the day she arrives, so don't expect this story to be one that will prepare or excite your older child about a baby on the way.
It's a cute story and I like the illustrations, but it's just not a good one to prepare a young child on becoming a big sibling.
The book did the trick in our family, and I have every expectation it will do the trick in hers.
"The trick"? Introduce a new baby and eliminate any and all first-born jealousies or bad feelings toward the new little "intruder." Get the first-born involved with age-appropriate caring for the little one, and build a sense of pride in the newborn.
The book is a delightful story, which my almost-two-year-old loved hearing over and over again, even (maybe even more) after his little sister left "Mommy's tummy" and was home to stay. Thirty-five years later, my son and daughter are still "best friends." Do I give ALL the credit to the book? 'Course not. But that's where it all started.
