My daughter's favorite book is Bear Snores On. One of her first words was "bear" and it was the first book she could "read" on her own (flipping through the pages and making the sneeze noise, roaring when bear wakes up, etc. on each respective page) It's also my favorite book to read to her. I was almost sad when the weather warmed up for the first time since our daughter was born because I felt like we would need a different book for summer. Since we love Bear Snores On so much, we couldn't wait to see what other books the authors had published. I especially was excited because I can't stand most children's books. We have tried two, Bear Feels Scared and Bear Wants More, and have come to the conclusion that sometimes the original just doesn't need a sequel, let alone many. They have the same rhythm, same format, same characters, but many times the rhymes seem forced and the stories just aren't compelling. I think what made the original so great was the introduction of the characters and the uncertainty of how a hibernating bear will react when he inevitably wakes up once the escalating party hits a tipping point. We've read "Scared" enough that I have the rhythm down and the awkward, forced rhymes don't trip me up. I know which character is coming up so I can do the appropriate voice, and my daughter still hops off my lap halfway through. Neither of us enjoy it.
