Published in 1950 decade, Other 1950's book: Pippi Longstocking The Adventures of Little Bear is an EZ Reader, “I Can Read” chapter book. It is a great pick for the purpose of teaching struggling readers. The main strength of the book is that the words in the story are “high frequency words” typically used to teach literacy. These words are used in English so often that they must become “sight words” young readers can read on demand without sounding out the syllables. Its purpose is not so much to entertain or to teach a moral, but rather to practice reading. However, the plots in the chapter book are weak, and they do not have universal appeal. The main character has a dutiful mother that is very practical and keeps Little Bear in check, and a distant father who is away from home and is sometimes grouchy when he returns. Little Bear’s friends are likable characters, but they play minor roles for the most part and they do not contribute much to the story as a whole. The content is repetitive since readers are practicing reading the same words and the main character, Little Bear, is partially subdued Consequently, I do not think children will enjoy reading the actual stories in this book, the only way I would recommend it is if someone asked for a book that would help struggling students learn sight words and build reading fluency. Ages K-3
Review: The Adventures of Little BearUser Review - Goodreads
Lydia March 2012 Cute, but Mother Bear is mean. Also, why doesn't Little Bear have any carnivore friends? It must be a sign that I'm aging that the only thing I could think when the duck and the chicken showed up for soup at his birthday party was "He should put them in the soup!"
