A Bernstein bear who owns an old hat comes across a hat store with a new hat in the window, so h goes in and tries on all the hats from big, tall, short , and small, and even fuzzy. Until he realizes the hat he already posses is just right for him.

I recommend to 2 year old up to 1st grade ( )

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. ( )

When he says that the store clerk is shocked that he would pick his old, worn hat over a brand new one. He decided's to keep his old hat and not buy a new one. ( )

This book great for beginning readers because it is filled with short, easy, rhyming words. It is about someone looking for a new hat who visits the perfect hat store. He goes in and tries on dozens of hats but none seem to be as good as the old hat he came with. ( )

Didn't realize the Berenstain Bears went this young. Anyway, here we have a fantastic vocabulary-building tool that shouts out its textures (fuzzy! holey! crooked! etc.!) and gives the adult reader a chance to do some fun prosodic and voicing stuff reading out all the different kinds of hats. ( )
