Very Hairy Bear by Alice Schertle, Matt Phelan

Everyone's favourite hairy bear is now appearing here in a board book edition. It highlights a year in the life of a lovable, hairy bear who spends his sunny days fishing for salmon and enjoying the sweet tastes of honey and berries. But when winter comes, his very chilly, not-so-hairy nose is the only thing that stands between this endearing bear and a really great nap. This is a cosy companion for naptime or bedtime.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
