These are stories that stay with you always.
The book itself is a great value. Cover art lies directly on a sturdy binding, and this volume contains the complete contents of three books: Little Bear, Little Bear's Friend and Little Bear's Visit. That's twelve stories, with charming illustrations by Maurice Sendak.
Lovely book, terrific value.
My children are eight and five, but they still enjoy sitting down occasionally and revisiting Little Bear. Throughout the books, Little Bear's mother is presented as the all-knowing, all-loving, kindly parent figure (you can imagine how much any parent secretly enjoys that!). The illustrations perfectly complement the calm, simple tone taken by Minarik in her tales. They present Little Bear as the typical kid: by turns curious, goofy, sad, frustrated, content, sleepy, joyful. We see the illogic involved in so many of the rites of passage of childhood without ever feeling that Little Bear is being made fun of. No, this is a protected, dear, secure universe concocted magically by Minarik and Sendak, and it's a pleasure to visit it every time you open the book.
I would recommend this book for ages 3 through 7. Children this age will easily identify with Little Bear's adventures and emotions. They will also enjoy the personification of the animals in the book. In addition, children longing for security will be reassured by the portrayal of Mother Bear's love for Little Bear. This book would be appropriate for parents to read to their young children for enjoyment. Older children who are learning to read will also enjoy the short, simple stories. The simple illustrations throughout the book complement the text perfectly by highlighting Little Bear's adventures. In addition, Maurice Sendak has done an amazing job of expressing the love between Little Bear and his mother with his endearing drawings.
A soothing alternative to ninjas and power rangers.
