The book itself is a fairly easy read so I have used it to help teach him how to read. He really enjoys the stories (as do I...) so we have read them about 50 times each.
Highly recommend as a box set. Reading just one of the books is good but it will leave you wanting more. :)
Later,I read replacement copies to CC's children and to Carolyn's, at the close of day, tucking them in.
I ordered and received several of the boxed sets recently with the specific purpose of distributing them to third grade teachers in two of Tallahassee's public schools. Seemed to me that Little Bear was just the ticket to engage 8- and 9-year olds in the joy of reading - a shortcoming, so I read in the press, of our public schools today. I walked them in them to Ruediger Elementary and Kate Sullivan Elementary and turned them over to grateful persons there with a suggestion that they be circulated to the children to take home. Bread on the waters, I did not ask for nor receive any report of their fate.
