4.0

The Bear books are quite popular, and even though both the rhyme scheme and illustrations are great, the combination of it feeling way too long for a board book and the huge amount of repetition make this one is just a little painful for me to read out loud.

I like that this book talks about shyness and making friends, and it goes through a few different animals throughout the story. Overall, the storyline just was ok to me.
