The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fun to read aloud and fun as a very first book to read alone, This Is the Bear is tragic story of what happens to a much-loved teddy bear after he’s pushed into the dustbin by the dog. It’s a saga of a search through dustbins and even the dump itself before the triumphant recovery. Told in simple rhyming verse, it’s a treat on its own but the accompanying CD which includes the three sequels as ‘performed’ by Bill Oddie and Imelda Staunton among others, makes it irresistible.

Synopsis

This is the Bear by Sarah Hayes

The boy, the bear and the dog are the best of friends. But one day the bear gets lost and has to be searched for high and low. Join in the fun of this picture book and activity CD performed by an array of stars. The audio CD contains four story readings, games, songs, activities and music.

Reviews

"Its rhyming, repetitive language with easy-to-read speech bubbles makes it ideal." The Guardian

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

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.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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 as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
