" Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss. " said.

" Great bilingual (English/Spanish) easy reader/read aloud series. Text reminds me of the Dr. Seuss beginning reader titles and are set against vibrant childlike renderings of action occurring in the story.All types of bears in this book. I liked the repetition that built the framework of the story: "Are you my brown bear?"Highly recommended for a bilingual storytime and for PreK-2 " said.

" Copy received from Edelweiss for an honest reviewFirst, I love bi-lingual books, especially bilingual books in French and Spanish. I really loved this book and I know that my children also enjoyed it. The sentences are simple and easy to follow along for very young children. The illustrations were beautiful. I only have one issue: Un gran oso is a grande bear not a big bear... it would be un uso grande... Other than that I loved this cute children's book. " said.

"This bilingual children's book does a great job of providing age-appropriate language instruction. Just as any PK-5 Spanish teacher would, the book follows a pattern of introducing new nouns and adjectives while making slight but important grammatical changes that children will naturally pick up on. The illustrations are a little rough but most are very cute. It is an ideal length. I felt that some of the vocabulary was a little too advanced or irrelevant -- I'm not sure that knowing how to say "fuzzy" in Spanish is a priority over more common words -- but all in all, this is a solid book. Purchase instead of borrowing for repeated practice." said.

"Yes, yes, another picture book review, but bears! Can't help it. It also is a bilingual book so that intrigued me even more.

The cover is cute and made me curious to what was in side. Wasn't sure if the Bear was asking or the butterfly.

In fact, it was another narrator altogether. The prose is very simple, question and answer, usually quantifying the type of bear you see on the screen. It's cute and to the point and of course by the end I smiled.

I really liked the art style, it's a bit messy but still detailed in it's way, making every bear distinctive and interesting. I would love to see more in this style.

My biggest complaint though is of the Spanish translation. I'm not sure which dialect of Spanish this is, but at least coming from a Central American background, there were a lot of words that didn't make sense or for my family at least, were the wrong words. I wish they'd print out what kind of Spanish this was because this certainly wouldn't be a book I'd use to teach my niece or nephews Spanish.

I'd like to thank the publisher via Edelweiss for allowing me a digital ARC of this.
