The story of an ugly bear who is in the habit of sitting heavily on the homes of small animals and who is properly squelched at last is charmingly illustrated with soft colors and amusing line. A colored illustration on each page. The book of finger-plays, using counting-off rhymes, is illustrated in color with greeting card whimsy, perhaps much too detailed and small for a very young child. Attractive format with decorated and papers. The washable durasheen binding is an eyecatcher in this series.
