Item description for It's the Bear! by Jez Alborough...
"The suspense is just scary enough for preschoolers, who will love the pie-in-the-sky ending in which both the bear and Eddie's mother get their just desserts." PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
The last time Eddie went for a walk in the woods, he had the biggest surprise of his life. There was a bear the size of a house in there! Now Eddie's mom is in the mood to picnic and she insists that the only bear in the woods is Eddie's teddy, Freddie. But when Mom rushes home to get the blueberry pie she forgot, leaving Eddie to wait in the woods all alone well, can you guess who shows up?

Great book! Jan 20, 2007
This is a great book for kids as well as parents. The story, along with the rhyming, keeps our toddler wanting to read it over and over again.
Great! Jan 14, 2007
We have this book as well as "Where's My Teddy" and my son LOVES these books. They are super cute and fun to read. Highly recommend.
A delightful bedtime story Jul 28, 2005
Our 2.5 year old adores this and other books by Jez Alborough. "It's the Bear" has lovely rhyming language, great illustrations and is a sure winner at bedtime.
The story itself provides opportunities for little ones to participate in punch lines and share their thoughts on what is going on in the pictures.
A wonderfully poetic story Aug 16, 2001
It's the bear is a frequent read in my home. All my children, ages 7 to 2, love the bear who is just as afraid of little Eddie as Eddie is of him. Infact, my (almost) 4 year old chose a teddy bear picnic theme for his birthday based on this book. A copy for each child attending made a wonderful gift.
YUM YUM! Feb 11, 2001
"It's the Bear" is a fun book to read aloud to young children. It's simply written, in near-rhyme, with lots of opportunity for the reader to whimper, yell, growl, and sniff. My son loves to holler some of the lines along with me. The drawings are great, with an absolutely oversized bear grasping a huge teddy bear of his own, and eating a bite-sized picnic that he stumbles upon.
Very enjoyable, a great bedtime read. I'll be getting more by this author.
