To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a wonderful book as other reviews have stated. Bright and beautiful illustrations. Engaging & fun. A lovely story to go with it so it's not just numbers. One flaw, I notice that on the last number page the actual number is missing and only the word is spelled out, unlike other pages where there is both the word and number (1 & ONE). Other than that super fun.
I love the Bear books & my 3yr old does too. We have several. She needed help in the number department and recognizing what the written number looks like. This was a miss for me. :-( Had I known that the counting only goes to 5, I wouldn't have bought this one. I wanted a counting book to 10. Also each written number is followed by an exclamation point. For example: 1!, 2! and so on. That's not too helpful with number recognition. I wish there was no punctuation. I was going to get the color book as well but now I'm not so sure.
But again, we love Bear & his friends but this was a miss for us!
We have "bear can't sleep" and "bear sees colors" and this was the third bear book we added to our collection. Its our least favorite of the three. The rhymes feel a little more forced and there is a lot going on the page that distract from the counting. In other words, this is a bear book that talks about counting but not a book to drive home counting to ten for you little one. If you are looking for a Bear book, get the ones I mentioned earlier-- we read them so much I have them both memorized.
