A splendid readaloud, extremely repetitive (“‘It’s me, Piggie Pig,’ said Piggie Pig. ‘Piggie Pig?’ said Cowsie Cow. ‘Piggie Pig?’ said Moosie Moose. ‘Piggie Pig?’said Bearsie Bear. ‘Yes, Piggie Pig,’ said Piggie Pig”) and very funny, too: the reader-aloud will undoubtedly be joined by a chorus of listeners happily helping the story along its cumulative way. The line-and-watercolor illustrations are funny and homey, with a generous use of white space that gives the story plenty of room.” A.A.F.

Bearsie Bear

Bearsie Bear is just falling asleep when a very cold Moosie Moose knocks on the door and asks to sleep over in Bearsie Bear's warm bed. Next knocks Cowsie Cow, then Piggie Pig, then Foxie Fox, then Goosie Goose . . . and the bed becomes, to say the least, crowded. The final knock is from Porkie Porcupine, whose insistence on a place to sleep causes a very pointed problem. How these animal friends make room for one another makes for a truly friendly picture book read-aloud for very young children.
