"There's a girl called Pearl..." and she has a new baby brother. This is about the difficulty a young child has when a new baby comes along. At first, Pearl is outraged when the new baby is in her highchair. She climbs in the pram and pretends that she is a baby too. Then, Bing Bong! Along comes that Bear again and he wants to play "Baby Bears!" Great story, as always, and lovely illustrations. Lots of chances to count and things to talk about as Pearl learns that, really, she doesn't want to knock things over or scribble. She can draw and build and eat with a spoon and is a big girl now. Eventually, she tires of the Bear's games and draws a lovely picture for her brother. This is the fourth book in a great series. The previous books are: "The Bear with Sticky Paws", "The Bear with Sticky paws goes to school" and "The Bear with Sticky Paws won't go to bed". Clara Vulliamy (daughter of Shirley Hughes) just keeps on getting better and better.
