Bearsie Bear was going to sleep when Moosie Moose came over. It was cold and he wanted in to sleep. Then Cowsie Cow, Piggie Pig, Foxie Fox, Goosie Goose, Porkie Porcupine each came by to sleep over. Porkie made them all leave because of his spines but they came back. Bearsie let them all back in and told them he was making pancakes for breakfast.

One cold night, when Bearsie Bear decideds to go to sleep, he hears a knock on the door. It was Moosie Moose, who was wanting to sleep over because he was too cold. Bearsie Bear decided to let him in, and they got ready for bed. Soon there was another knock with another animal wanting in. This continually happened until there were seven animals in bed, all sound asleep!

This is a delightful bedtime story that young children will love to hear and read. The story begins with Bearsie Bear answering a knock on his door in the middle of a cold, snowy night. It's Moosie Moose, and he wants to sleep over! Before Bearsie Bear knows it, he has six guests sleeping over. This is a great book that does a lot with sounds and alliteration. Beginning readers will learn about similar letter sounds, and can enjoy predicting what happens next in the story.

This is a fun bedtime story about Bearsie Bear's surprise sleepover. It's a cold night and Bearsie Bear hears a knock at her door. It is Moosie Moose followed by six other animals who are welcomed inside to escape the cold weather. Young children will love the costant repetition and simplistic pictures.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618125418, Paperback)

Bearsie Bear is just falling asleep when a very cold Moosie Moose knocks on the door and asks to sleep over in Bearsie Bear's warm bed. Next knocks Cowsie Cow, then Piggie Pig, then Foxie Fox, then Goosie Goose . . . and the bed becomes, to say the least, crowded. The final knock is from Porkie Porcupine, whose insistence on a place to sleep causes a very pointed problem. How these animal friends make room for one another makes for a truly friendly picture book read-aloud for very young children.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:17:21 -0400)

In a cumulative story, one animal after another asks to come in out of the winter cold to sleep in Bearsie Bear's big bed.
