Big Bear learns that it's better to deal with a problem head on rather than ignore it by coming up with tiny or large remedies that will not last. It is an excellent story to use expression when being told, making it an excellent book to engage the child whom it is being read to( eg. This story depicts patience and kindness on the part of big bear, where he goes to great lengths to help little bear realise that the dark is nothing to be afraid of. A bestselling story which won the Kate Greenaway Medal for illustration, and has sold more than 7 million copies worldwide.

He's only young but likes to look at the pictures and it's a good length story to help him get used to hearing people read. The illustrations are darling and I loved how, in the end, Big Bear wanted Little Bear to confront his fear of the dark, but did so in a very gentle and reassuring way helping him to always see the lights that appear in the darkness. My daughter suffered severe brain damage during her birth and as such we are unsure about her future ie. in un inglese comprensibile anche perni bimbi piccoli,con frasi brevi e che si ripetono, il che non solo piace ai bimbi, ma aiuta anche a fissare le espressioni.

We then introduce the idea that it’s night time so we turn off the classroom lights, give them hot chocolate to taste and lastly put a black dark sheet across their eyes so that they really understand that it’s bedtime for the bears. The book also made the children laugh and they identified the repetition which they enjoyed joining in with. different voices for little bear and big bear, facial expressions protraying fear, reassurance etc). The DVD is short but beautiful, using the original pictures from the book with a little animation, soothing narration and gentle backing music to tell the story. The pages at the beginning are lightly coloured like a lamp to symbolise the safety of the bear’s home, I would discuss this with children and why the pages get darker as the bears go outside.

The final episode, in which Little Bear has fallen asleep in Big Bear's arms, and Big Bear (finally! The reader becomes curious as to where the story is going which at the same time makes it an intriguing read. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.The illustrations are cute, but otherwise, way too repetitive to not be boring, both my 5 yr old and preschoolers had a hard time staying engaged in this story.

The words may seem repetitive, but it's just the perfect rhythm to draw a little one into a sweet slumber.I also read this book with children when I worked in a pre-nursery and during SBT with the younger children. For example we have two toy bears that we introduce to them at the beginning of the story who they get to cuddle and get a sense of their two sizes (bigger for big bear etc…), we then give them each a small teddy bear who they cuddle up in a blanket.

Little Bear still tosses and turns so Big Bear has to stop reading his book again to get him some more light.
