Everyone loves little bear! This book is beautifully written and little bear illustrations are classic! The book is small, so it works best when reading to just one or two children. A great book for preschool age children.
Strange story I love all the other Little Bear books in her series but this one was strange. I'm sure that 30 years ago it wouldn't have seemed odd to tell your child a story about kisses being passed from one person to another but in today's age it just left a strange feeling with me esp at the part where the skunks kept kissing eachother back&forth. At least they get married at the end of the story. I took it back to the libray. Glad I didn't buy it. I own all the others she wrote however and love them.A wonderful book for bedtime My son, 2 1/2, loves Little Bear from the cartoons on Noggin and was thrilled that we found these books to read to him. He often selects this book (or one of the other Minarik books) from his bookcase at bedtime for my wife or I to read to him. The stories are brief but entertaining and the illustrations are rich and engaging. The books are a bit flimsy and I would prefer that they be available in a more durable format but that is a minor issue compared to the wonderful content of these books.
