Customers who bought this item also bought
Bear seems happy in this solitude and even has a sign posted on his house, “No visitors allowed.” A mouse who taps on Bear’s door is told to go away. But Mouse won’t, and keeps reappearing until Bear finally dissolves into tears and gives in. Soon Bear realizes it’s pleasant having someone else around, and when Mouse is ready to leave, Bear doesn’t want him to go; he even removes the sign, declaring that it was for really just for salesmen, “not for friends.” Watercolor, ink and gouache illustrations in a soft color palette show a comfortable, expansive house that seems to emphasize Bear’s need for a friend to fill it up. The characters are highly expressive, making the pictures fun, and the dramatic text will lend itself to reading aloud. Pair this with Laura Vaccaro Seeger’s Dog and Bear (2007). Preschool-Grade 2. --Randall Enos --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The lively repetition and superb pacing make this an ideal choice for storytime.

Frankly, I love reading it. Even my husband enjoyed listening in to tonight's reading.
The illustrations and the writing work really well together.
The humour is obvious enough for the little ones with a little extra that makes it enjoyable for adults too.
The vocabulary choices make it more interesting than many children's books. Accessible, but enough of a stretch that some new words are introduced. (like "whisked" (which my son loves)and "insufferable")
It's just adorable and genuine. And I don't mind that it's become the new favorite (which means I can expect to be reading it every night for the next few weeks!)
