LoveReading View on Bears In The Night

One of our 'Must Reads'. Lively pictures, charming characters and the fact that the story only uses 24 words, but to beautiful effect, make this a brilliant book for beginner readers.  The bears are running through the woods in the dark and up the hills and finally getting spooked ‘up spook hill’ and returning home.


Bears In The Night Synopsis

The pictures tell the story here, captioned by a series of prepositional phrases that follow seven little bears "out of bed, . . . out the window, . . . through the woods, . . . up Spook Hill" (where they are chased away by a menacing owl), then "down Spook Hill, through the woods" and so on until they are "back in bed" (while Mother Bear, glimpsed through the window, sits sewing obliviously downstairs). Another Berenstain bauble for the earliest beginner, more involving than many of its ilk.
