Reviews - What do customers think about He Bear, She Bear (Bright & Early Board Books(TM))?

Just Great!  Jan 5, 2007
My kid has totally fallen in love with this book. The illustrations are great and he looks at every little detail. He is only 17 months old, so I doubt if he understands the concept, but he likes to read this book. He points to the He Bear and says papa and the She Bear and says Mama! There is enough to keep him engaged for 15 mins. I would love it if it were a board book.
 
Fun for kids with many interests  Jul 17, 2006
Our son and daughter, ages five and three, have been pulling this book off the shelves at least a couple times each month over the past two years. It still appeals to them because the characters imagine themselves participating in many exciting activities such as flying a jet, making a mess or 'taming twelve tigers.' Gender issues are just one aspect of this fast paced, wide ranging book.
 
Bright, fun, punchy little poetic story  Dec 29, 2005
Both me and my girls love this book, and it has had an amazing effect on their understanding of what is what in life. My girls at time of writing this are 2 and nearly 4 - and they have got to grips with the concept of what is he and she but also what it means. It has helped explain to (well at least to the 4 year old) that only men are he and women are she - but that pretty much everything is open to them from there on in.

I really like that in a book. It is a fun poem with brightly coloured illustrations - and the wonderfully rounded Berenstain Bears which they evolved in their later illustrations.

Nice book for 2 and Up I would say. (I do love most of the Berenstain books by the way and so do my kids)
 
Outdated view of women's rights for kids today  Mar 26, 2004
Depending on the society you live in, the "she can do anything he can" view seemed outdated to me. By saying that "she" can do the obvious, it implies that there is a reason to have to say it. By saying isn't it wonderfull that "she" can do these too, it implies that "normally" maybe she shouldn't be able to, or why make a big deal about it. I think children should learn about "shes" having to make a big deal about it, but I don't want to make a big deal about my "she" children doing "certain" things or my "he" children doing "certain" things. I want them to grow up not thinking it's worth making a big deal about whether a "she" does construction work, or a "he" sews. This potentially could cast doubts in the minds of "nontraditional" "hes" and "shes". Frankly, my kids were quite confused by this emphasis on "he" and "she", instead of just "people do these things".
 
He Bear She Bear Review  Aug 10, 2000
This story is based on a family that enjoys adventure around town. The main characters of the book are two baby bears, a "He Bear" and a "She Bear."

The message in this story for children and adults is that just because you're a male or a female doesn't mean you can't do anything you want to do if you put your mind to it.

This book is very good for kids because it is funny and it shows responsibility.
