Overview

In 1957, Harper published its first I Can Read title, Little Bear, written by Else Holmelund Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Large type, simple vocabulary, chapter-like divisions, and decorative pictures made Little Bear perfect for emerging readers—they could read the story comfortably and not feel overwhelmed by the text. Following suit came such classics as Peggy Parish's Amelia Bedelia series, Lillian Hoban's books about Arthur the monkey, and Syd Hoff's popular Danny and the Dinosaur. Many books in this series are special in the depth of emotion evoked - Little Bear, the Frog and Toad books by Arnold Lobel, and Daniel's Duck by Clyde Bulla, to name a few - and all are enjoyed by children of all ages. Preschool - Grade 1.

"The lady next door sang. She sang high and loud. When she sang Harry's ears hurt." How can you not love a book that starts out like that?

I loved the old style illustrations in the book. They were simple and reminded me of a lot of the books I read as a child. Unfortunately I can¿t say the same thing for the story line. In a nutshell, Harry the dog strongly dislikes his neighbor and works hard to avoid her loud singing voice and get her shipped to another country. Although the neighbor woman does go voluntarily it hardly speaks volumes for tolerance and understanding with the take home seemingly being if you don¿t like something get rid of it.

Fantastic book for little eyes and ears. In a world where fat ladies just wont stop singing, Harry comes to save the day. I had trouble with some of the bigger words.

My 5 year old nephew really enjoys this book.

My grandmother used to read this book to me and my siblings and it was so memorable that we still talk about it 30 years later, so I purchased two copies - one for my one-year old nephew and another for my five-month old son (who loves it!). I highly recommend this book!

I liked this book for several reasons and chose it because I read stories to pre - school childern. Because it is a picture book, the illustrations were the right size for reading to a group. I also chose it because it is a beginner chapter book which I used as an encouragement to my pre-school listeners. I told them since they had been such good listeners in the past, I thought they were ready for a chapter book like the big elementary kids. And just one more reason I chose this book- who doesn't love to read about a cute little dog's adventure?

I remember the Harry stories from when I was little (I'm 42) so when I saw this, I knew I had to have it for my kids (ages 4 and 5) They love the stories as much as I did!
