I love this book! This is the best book! This is my favourite book in the whole wide world! It’s chant-y, like a song, so I can dance to it when Mummy reads it to me. I like dancing. And there are animals but a lot of them are funny colours. Like bears are supposed to be brown and ducks are supposed to be yellow and frogs are supposed to be green. But horses aren’t blue! And cats aren’t purple! That’s so silly. I like listening to this book over and over so I make Mummy and Daddy read it lots. They never say no to me.

I’m starting to hate this book a little. Tilly will bring it to me and I’ll read it to her. Then we close the last page and she hands it to me again with those imploring eyes, as if to say, ‘What are you waiting for? Again, Mummy! Again!’ And so I read it again. And again. And I won’t say no to her when it comes to reading aloud because I’m glad that she likes books and stories and will actually bring me books to read to her but bloody hell… Brown Bear, *again*? At least it *is* a fun one to read aloud, and I do love the signature Eric Carle illustrations. I’m tempted to hide this one. That would be mean, wouldn’t it?


  1. Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot
    of spam feedback? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.

    1. We do get a lot of spam. We use Askimet. I still have to go through a few spam comments it doesn’t catch
