Okay, I’ll admit it: this is one of those books where I don’t really know how good it is, on it’s own, just as a book, because my estimation of it is all tangled up with good memories involving it. I think of reading it to my kids, over and over again–my toddler and pre-schooler can’t get enough of it. I think of my own mother reading it to me as a child, and I remember giggling at the silly hats and silly rhymes. I like that there’s a little story that winds through the book, even if there’s not heavy narration to spell it out for us. I remember looking at the hats and trying to decide which one was my favorite, and now I find my three-year-old doing the same thing. It’s a great book for reading aloud with a wide variety of ages and reading levels. I might like it extra because of my history with it, but I definitely think it’s worth reading.

I always love Berenstain Bear books and this is a really cute one too. Very simple words, but fun to see the story develop without a lot to say.

Who Wrote Old Hat New Hat

author & illustrator
Stan Berenstain

Stan Berenstain and his wife, Jan, were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children’s books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 300 Berenstain Bears books have been published and more than 260 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons’ love of reading has become over the years arguably the best-selling children’s book series ever. Since their inception, the Berenstain Bears stories have expanded to include picture books, beginning readers, and chapter books—even a hit TV show on PBS. Writing and illustrating the books has become a Berenstain family affair. Mike joined with his parents as a creative team in the late 1980s. The Bear family has expanded over the years as well. Sister Bear arrived in 1974, and baby Honey joined the family in 2000.
