Who loves the Berenstain Bears? Who sees a pic of them and is instantly transported back to childhood? Who couldn’t wait to have kids just for the excuse to revisit them?
Is your hand in the air? Mine is. And one day, I’m sure my son will raise his hand if asked these questions. Here is my little man’s (current) favourite Berenstain Bears book.
Bears in the Night / Stan and Jan Berenstain
(Bright and Early Books, 1972)
The Berenstain Bears are a staple of children’s literature. Stan and Jan Berenstain created these bears for a series of books for children of all ages.
Bears in the Night is targeted at the very young child. 24 words arranged, rearranged and repeated in a series of declarative statements show you what happens as the curious young bears sneak out of their bedroom window to investigate what is making the WHOOO! sound in the night.
My daughter is five and is now at a stage where she prefers to pull away during story time to read her own books. But when she hears my two-year-old son ask for this one, she turns back to us and asks to read it aloud. She loves it, and my son loves hearing a different voice reading his night-time book.
Have you read Bears in the Night? What did you think?
