From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-- Thirty-five selections of widely varying quality and appeal are contained in this attractive anthology originally published in Great Britain. Stories such as ``This Is the Bear'' by Sarah Hayes, ``Five Minutes Peace'' by Jill Murphy, and ``Can't You Sleep, Little Bear?'' by Martin Waddell are here in their textual entirety with some of the illustrations from the picture books. Parts of some other books are included such as Shirley Hughes's Out & About (Lothrop, 1988) , one ``Waldo''(Little) two-page spread, and ``Hob and Boggart'' from William Mayne's The Red Book of Hob Stories (Philomel, 1984). The effect is very much that of a bound Ladybug magazine. The picture books lose a great deal when the text is limited to as few as two pages with a few illustrations. Much of the pacing and flow of the story that comes from turning pages to reveal the next passage is gone. Some of the stories are mildly amusing but not memorable. The wide range in age levels may be an advantage for family sharing, but is a drawback for classroom use. Still, there are some good stories here, and the variety of illustrators give the book definite eye appeal. --Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ

From Publishers Weekly:

Rather than reflecting this volume's content, its title refers to the publisher's logo, a candlestick-carrying bear. No apparent theme connects the entries in the book, which collects the work of an impressive array of authors and illustrators, most of whom hail from England. Such luminaries as Helen Oxenbury, Jan Ormerod and John Burningham contribute stories for the very young. Other highlights are playful verses by Michael Rosen, illustrated by Quentin Blake; "Can't You Sleep, Little Bear?," a bedtime story by Martin Waddell, illustrated by Barbara Firth; and the text and selected art from Jill Murphy's picture book Five Minutes' Peace . The selections--the bulk of which have been previously published--are geared to an unusually broad range of age levels, making this book appropriate for families with preschoolers as well as elementary-level readers. Ages 3-up.
