5-A-Day Books: Bears

This week our books are all about bears.

An absolute classic, such a fun book and very popular in our house.  You can't really do bears without including this one!

This series of fairytales by Nick Sharratt and Stephen Tucker are great.  They are a really fun take on the traditional tales.  I love that Goldilocks has dreadlocks!.  They have bright colourful illustrations, lovely rhyming text and lots of flaps for fiddly fingers.  I've found them great books for reading to the girls together, enough going on to keep a three year old enthralled whilst great rhyming text to keep the interest of a one year old.

One of the Usborne 'That's not my' series.  Really nice books.  A Shoeshine favourite.

A magical snowy sparkly tale about honey bear and his friends trying to walk along the moon path to meet the smiley moon and have a tea of mooncakes and moonjuice.

A lovely touchy feely board book about a little bear going on an adventure through the woods. meeting the scary spider and finally finding his friends for a picnic.  Lots for little fingers to touch.

What are your favourite bear books?


  1. We love "We're going on a Bear Hunt" too. The boys like "Old Bear" by Jane Hissey. T's favourite is Paddington Bear!

  2. There are so many good bear books. I bet T find's Paddington Bear so funny - I love the story of him being a usher at a wedding, where he thought his job was to 'ush people quiet! Will have to put Old Bear onto my library reservation list.
