Format: Hardcover
I received this book for Christmas this year for my 3 1/2 year old. The book says its for 5 and up but my son just loves this book. The illustrations are great and I love reading to my son at night so any book that ends with a character going to bed is so great in showing him that the "cranky bear is going to bed so now it is time for you to go to bed". It also rhymes which my son really loves (big Dr. Seuss fan) and it is not really long (like many Dr. Seuss books) which makes it ideal for bedtime. I think it is a great book for 3 and up.

I love this book, its so funny and sweet. I actually enjoy reading this story more than my kids do (they may still be a bit too young to get the humor). The illustrations are great too.

Format: Hardcover
The first thing that stands out about this book are the illustrations of the animals on the very first page. The lion has such a wonderfully wild mane and the moose has creative antlers. The illustrations throughout this book are colorful and creative.

This is a wonderful story about the animal who is the least flashy (the plain sheep) coming to the rescue by helping the cranky bear. The other animals try their own flashy solutions, but none actually understand what the bear really needs. The sheep listens and the sheep delivers. Yes! This story is a great example of friendships and relationships.

The bear may be cranky, but he is not frightening. I would recommend this book for any age.

We got it for our 2 year old daughter and let me tell you, we (she and I) never tire of it. I confess: I used to leave the reading up to my wife as I always found most of the toddler books out there dull and uninteresting. Not this one: it has friendship, action, mystery and more importantly, it sends a message of compassion. I never turn her down when she asks me to read it for her. My 2 y/o knows the book by heart (so do I). I highly recommend it.

This is one of my all-time absolute favorite books!!! It's a quick read but I can read it every night and never get tired of it. Great little story about moral character and, though it may not be fully appreciated by little ones, they sure love the story line anyway! Especially when you make different voices for each of the characters. It's really too bad that it's out of print, but well worth getting if you can get your hands on a copy!!! Just a really sweet story.

My 3- year- old takes this book everywhere...car trips, dinner table, bed. If they made a waterproof version he'd take it in the bath. Beautiful illustrations, a sweet story, a little humor and a good lesson make this fun-to-read-aloud book a must-have for cranky (and non-cranky) toddlers.

Format: Hardcover
This book is fabulous! It has perfect rhythm, and rhyme and the illustrations are superb. The book is hilarious, but also sweet with a good message. My 1 1/2-year-old daughter wants to read it about 15 times a day, but I'm confident that it would be enjoyed by older children as well. I'm dying to get more books by this author. Highly recommended!

We got this from my son's preschool book fair and while I chose it because of the cover, my three year old and I have an absolute blast reading through it! It rhymes, it has great pictures, animals, and it's actually funny for both him and I. Honestly one of the best books of the 20-30 books that we've read. My thanks to the creators.
