    One thought on “Ask Mr. Bear[ ASK MR. BEAR ] by Flack, Marjorie (Author) Aug-01-71[ Paperback ]”

    1. Aww the ending will put a smile on your face! Young children just love stories where things or characters are added, page by page. I call them "building-block stories." They're obvious, repetitive and oh so catchy! They're just the right level for toddlers to grasp the idea that there's another "building block," and they do love trying to guess what comes next. It's one of the best formats to keep youngsters engaged and eager to read more.Ages 2+

    2. Danny's mom is having a birthday and Danny goes in search of a gift for her. He asks all the farm animals if they have something he might be able to give her.This is an easy story that is easy to understand.

    3. Ask Mr. Bear is another of the old children's book I found last month. As with Mr. Pingle and Mr. Buttonhouse, I was drawn to the book for its illustrations. In this case, the author, Marjorie Flack also illustrated the book.The book published during the Depression, follows a young boy on a quest for a birthday present for his mother. As with so many children's books, the boy goes from farm animal to farm animal asking advice from each. When each suggests a gift that they can give and that his m [...]

    4. A young boy needs to find a birthday present for his mother. He meets lots of animals who offer to give him milk, cheese, wool to make a blanket, and many other things. His mother already has those things, so he finds Mr. Bear. Mr. Bear tells him to give his mother a big bear hug. The boy’s mother is very happy with her present. The artwork is very clear and crisp, done in simple colors. The animals are all easily identifiable, and children will enjoy pointing to the animals and saying their n [...]

    5. I feel that this is a good children's book because it teaches kids a positive lesson that they can always keep with them. The lesson that the kids would learn from this book is that people do not always need to receive actual gifts for presents and that sometimes the simple things are all that matter. I feel that the books text and illustrations compliment each other nicely. If you did not read the actual text in the book you can almost understand what is actually going on in the story which is [...]

    6. Ask Mr. Bear is about a little boy who was hunting for a present. He asks all the animals and nothing seems right for a present until at last he meets Mr. Bear. It is fun to guess what Mr. Bear whispered to Danny, and of course the last picture shows. ( Summary)Marjorie Flack's illustrations help carry this simple story about a boy looking for the perfect gift for his mother. The cumulative tale ends on the last page as readers discover that love is an wonderful gift, and that with lots of thoug [...]

    7. This the perfect gift for a blue-eyed blonde boy to give his mother on her birthday. A little girl could do the same, if the person reading this aloud is willing to change "Danny" to "Danielle" and accept that "Danielle" has a golden pixie haircut (the boy is already wearing a pink shirt). Why won't the animals go see Mr. Bear at the end with Danny? Why must he go alone? What kind of friends are those, to send Danny alone into the bear's den? They obviously know something he doesn't know, yet wi [...]

    8. I did not particularly enjoy this book.It does a nice job of using repetitive language. Little Danny asks the same question to a series of animals and the animals tend to answer the same way each time. Unfortunately though, nobody talks in real life the way the animals talk. If somebody approached me and asked to give them something unsolicited, and then refused what I offered, I would not feel like helping them find somebody else that might help them. I also really do not understand why everybo [...]

    9. This is another that I wish I'd have had around when Julia was younger. It's not the most exceptional book we've ever read but like most everyone else here has said, it is a cute story and it is worth reading. The basic story is somewhat overdone in childrens books but this was published in 1932, I think, so we can assume it wasn't so overdone at the time. Julia's starting to get into older books which makes me very happy. She used to shy away from them if they "looked" older but lately she's be [...]

    10. I wish I could give this book six stars instead of just five. This is one of my FAVORITE books to read aloud to toddlers and preschoolers. When I need a crowd pleaser--this is the book I choose. The text layout is perfect for picture book read-alouds. The kids love to shout out the animal name as I slowly (and suspensefully) turn the page. My kids always make me do a "special voice" for all of the animals.

    11. I love this book! Not only for the colorful illustrations, but for the loving and caring that I found reading it. The story follows a little boy named Danny, trying to find the perfect present for his mom. As he goes around asking all of the different animals, they all offer things that his mother already has. They suggest that he go and see Mr. Bear, and it turns out that he has something that he can give his mother that only he can!! Such a wonderful story.

    12. An oldie but goodie for storytimes (themes include farm animals, animal sounds, bears). It's a simple cumulative tale. The drawings are definitely a product of their particular era in printing; that's a pro and a con. I like the gentleness, but imagine some readers might find it dull or off-putting. Easily adapted to flannelboard storytelling.

    13. This story was very funny, and teaches several lessons. Children can count the number of animals that didn't want to go talk to Mr. Bear. However, at the end of the day Mr. Bear gave wonderful advice to the little boy in the story about what to get his mother for her birthday, and he didn't eat the little boy as the other animals thought he would.

    14. This little story about a boy searching for the perfect gift for his mother has stood the test of time -- and for good reason! It's cumulative, it's predictable (with a bit of a surprise at the end), and it's about familiar farm animals who can talk!

    15. is it okay to say classic when it's published orig in 1932? what does it say about today's books that when the boy met the bear at the end, my girls thought he would be EATEN!? sheesh. the ending is much sweeter than that.

    16. This was read to me a lot when I was a child and I remember it as part if my families book collection. I love the vivid illustration and remember them so well. My rating is biased based on the strong emotional connection I have to this book and how I associate it with many happy childhood memories.

    17. Read during Preschool Class Visit on 5/9/12: storytimesecrets/Read at Baby/Toddler Lap Time on 5/11/12: storytimesecrets/

    18. I think Logan would have loved this book about a year ago, when he was 3 or 4, but he's a bit too old for it now. Too repetitive and not enough going on. It's a lovely book though and I always love Flack's drawings.

    19. An old fashioned-picture book that has been around for many years but still resonates with a wonderful, gentle story of a little boy trying to find just the right birthday present for his mother. A classic.

    20. Enjoyed this more than I had anticipated. The cumulative story has a nice twist towards the end. The illustrations are evocative of the ones from my elementary school readers and I was not charmed by them at all.

    21. Cute older book that models giving gifts to loved ones on their birthdays, gives an opportunity for a big hug at the end and models good manners, as well as plenty of time to learn animal names and noises. MicroMort really liked it.

    22. Genre: Picture/FictionI really enjoyed this book and I thnk most young boys and girls will enjoy it too. The ending is cute when he talks to the bear in the woods and the bear talks to him to give her a bear hug.

    23. I think this is a great preschool read aloud book. It introduces animal sounds and the concepts of what they give. It's repetitive so it allows the child to predict what will happen next. Plus, I really like the overall story. It's warm and fuzzy. :)

    24. I always love vintage illustrations, so of course I liked the illustrations in this one. It follows a small boy trying to find a gift for his mother as he asks various animals for help. Wording wasn't as much fun as some modern picture books, but, it was still a cute book.

    25. I remember reading this when I was a kidA very heart-warming book it just makes you want to give some one a nice warm cozy bear hug~!
