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.

As a children's librarian, I read lots of children's books and I buy my very favorites to save for the grandchildren I hope to have some day or just to be sure I have it when I need it. This was one of those books; stands out from the rest. Very cute, with great pictures and a wonderful story.

I am a preschool teacher and was doing a theme on bears and was looking for a different book on bears. I certainly found it in this book.The story is quick and smooth reading and the pictures are absolutely colorful and attractive. The children LOVE this book and ask me to read it EVERY DAY!!! It is such a cute book and it teaches empathy and we have had many discussions about how we could help our friends get out of their cranky mood.

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.

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.

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.

My grandsons love this book - the two 2 year olds have heard it so many times that they can repeat every word in it. They enjoy the rhyming words and of course love it when the bear Rooaars! We bought all of Nick Bland's bear books but none quite compare to Cranky Bear.

Delivered in timely manner, though I goofed and bought the paperback version instead of hardcover. I didn't realize I bought a $21 paperback when I could get hardcover for the same price or a few dollars more. My mistake but way too much money for a paperback.
