Grandmother and Grandfather Bear
Mother Bear's Robin
Goblin Story
Not Tired

The stories - and Sendak's illustrations - are old-fashioned but timeless and charming. The four stories can be read independently in any order, but are nested such that it makes more sense to read them straight through. Little touches of humor (as at the end of "Not Tired" when Little Bear is not tired...he's fast asleep) keep the stories from being too plain. ( )

This can be a great story to read to young children before grandparent’s day at their school. Teachers can also have children put the two stories, the first mother bear and robin and the second the goblin, important events in order to allow the children to learn about sequencing.

Little Bear spends the day with his grandparents playing and telling stories until it is time to go home and he is sleepy.
