A good story considering how few words are needed in order to tell it. Also has a bit of an environmental message, or at least a consumer one: Sometimes there's nothing wrong with what you already have. ( )

The Berenstain Bears are Out shopping, the Bears look at frilly and silly hats, bumpy and lumpy ones. This book presents an opportunity to present the concepts of sizes and shape to children using humor. ( )
