Product Description

Review

''Kids' imagination will run away with the Bear on a Bike...The diverse and colourful vocabulary will stimulate young readers. Quirky drawings by Debbie Harter, depicting mischievous babies on the beach and tongue-lolling tired dogs all add to the fun' --Observer

'Bear on his bike will be right at home on your child s book shelf alongside such wonders as Bear in Sunshine and Bear At Home. This delightful series places Bear in everyday situations, bringing fun and good humour into the lives of his friends and proving once more that the children s book publishing sector is every bit as lively and as professional as its grown up counterpart' --London Cyclist Magazine

'Beautifully illustrated in great detail. This happy story is full of joy and excitement... Young children will learn a lot about friendship and caring from this charming story' --Early Years Educator

About the Author

On good days, Stella Blackstone lives east of the sun and west of the moon. On less good days, she lives at the bottom of a well. She finds ideas in all of these places and turns them into songs, poems and rhymes. She has read and written poetry for as long as she can remember, and her favourite books include Louis Untermeyer's A Child's Treasury of Poetry, which was a constant companion throughout her childhood, Paolo Coelho's The Alchemist, everything by T.S. Eliot, and William Buck's translation of The Ramayana. She lives in southwest England, and enjoys walking and working in her garden as well as doing nothing whenever she has the chance. Debbie Harter was born and raised in England, and she currently lives in Penzance, Cornwall. She has participated in all kinds of artistic ventures, creating jewellery, textiles, ceramics, mirrors and candles. Now Debbie works primarily in book illustration, and with her bold and vibrant style, has created many of Barefoot Books' most successful titles, including Herb, the Vegetarian Dragon (1999), The Animal Boogie (2000) and the best-selling Bear series.

I think this is a great book, my french isn't great, I've not spoken it since school so it's nice to learn it again with my little boy. The only problem is my pronounciation, I'm not sure if I am saying the words correctly and there is nowhere that I can find online with a native french person reading the story.
But that aside my little boy loves turning the pages and seeing what bear is doing in the next room!
Would definitely recommend :)

I bought the paperback version about 2 years ago and I'm now sending it to nieces and nephews as a gift. It's a short book in which a boy follows the bear on various modes of transportation on small adventures to different places. My sons were 3 and 1 1/2 when I first read it to them and they loved the fanciful rhyming and the simple but colourful illustrations. Both of them quickly memorized most of the book and took turns "reading" it to me and my husband. Little ones will get LOTS of enjoyment out of this book.

I ordered this for my three year old son, who has very quickly memorised the entire book. He absolutely loves the vibrant illustrations which fill the pages and the easy rhyming story is very effective and is easy to memorise.

The book itself isn't very long, and each double page has a four line poem on it. There are plenty of bright coloured illustrations on every page filling the pages completely to keep the child busy with pointing out various items or actions.

Makes for a fantastic reading time and even if kids flick through on their own they can read it from memory due to ease of the rhyming story.

We originally got this from the library, but my son (and I) loved it so much I had to buy it! There aren't too many words for a young child with limited concentration, and the pictures and colours are just gorgeous! You could spend ages on each page talking about everything. We have bought more from this series for my son's first birthday.

The bright colours and interesting drawings make this a very appealing book for little people, and there's lots to discuss and point out as the bear progresses from room to room in his house. Great for introducing words relating to different rooms and talking about what we do in each room in the house.

I took this book out of the library for my 22 month old daughter, it's now due back...and I'm hoping for fast delivery from Amazon as she loves it so much. It's bright and colourful, and follows a bear on different modes of transport to different places. I think my daughter likes books which have some repetition in the wording and this uses the same phrase when saying what transport the bear is using (bear on a bike as happy as can be, where are you going bear, please wait for me..hee hee I've got it memorised I've read it so many times), and the great thing is I love this book too so am happy to read it again and again and again :)

I saw this being read during the Tweenies program, and noticed my daughter liking it very much. I then bought it and haven't regretted it for a single moment! The text & rhymes are lovely, but the pictures are absolutely outstanding. There's so many things to point at, and even after months I keep finding new ones! I am now buying the other books in this bear series; hopefully they'll be as good!

We were given this book when our baby, now 9 months, was around 2 months and we were reading it to him from the start. For a few months, it was the only book we could read to him and it is still a huge favourite. The rhyme is perfect and the illustrations are gorgeous. I've given it to a number of friends with babies now. I've struggled to find a book for our baby which does as good a job all round. So glad we were given it; I wouldn't have known about it otherwise.
