Personal response: This book would be great read for young girls and boys ages 4-8 years old that are working in making connections as a way to improve their reading comprehension. The readers can make text to self-connections because most children ages 4-8 years old visit their grandparents like Little Bear. This book can help readers make predictions and will learn to retell or summarize the chapter a great book to make the picture book transition to chapter books.

I love the little bear books. They were some of the first books I learned to read on my own. I had the entire series and my favorite has always been the story where little bear makes a special hat and goes to the moon. The illustrations are just as wonderful as the stories themselves. ( )
