Great stories to read to little ones. Did not like the flimsy box the books come in as in "boxed set". Otherwise, love it.

I love the little bear books. They were some of the first books I learned to read on my own. I had the entire series and my favorite has always been the story where little bear makes a special hat and goes to the moon. The illustrations are just as wonderful as the stories themselves.

I read these books to my children and now I'm buying them for the next generation. Little Bear is just so adorable.

Taking the advice of the public library where this series is checked out continually, I purchased the set for a granddaughter. She was delighted with the stories and illustrations and read them over and over. Highly recommended.

This is my favorite children's book collection. The stories are sweet and there is always a lesson to be learned. All children would love these! I read these to my little one when he was little and loved to watch the t.v. show versions of them. Now he's 18 and I kept these books for him so that he can pass them down to his kids and read to them.....not yet but someday :)

i learned to read on this series, and it is a great beginning book. my love of reading grew because of how much i could connect with the characters and understand what they went through. i am actually buying the series for a child who is about to start school, and i am sure she will love Little Bear as well!!!!!
