Bearsie Bear and the Surprise Sleepover Party
By Bernard Waber

Review by: Lori Plach

     When your child requests to climb into bed with you, do you ever wish that your bed was bigger to accommodate more guests? Bearsie Bear is faced with too many guests and not enough room in his bed.
     It's a very cold night and Bearsie Bear just wants to curl up and do what bears do best ---hibernate. Moosie Moose knocks on the door, he's cold and requests to sleep over. Reluctantly, Bearsie Bear agrees for just this one time. Just as the twosome are falling asleep, Cowsie Cow comes to visit. Moosie Moose suggest that Cowsie stay over too. One at a time, another animal comes and joins the sleepover including: Piggie Pig, Foxie Fox, and Goosie Goose. There is trouble when Porkie Porcupine peeks in the door and exclaims "Oooh, A party. A great  big sleepover party," and invites himself.
      Disgusted about the porcupine's sharp quills poking them, the other five guests at Bearsie Bear's small cottage leave. Bearsie Bear sees them peering through the window. Seeing them shivering, Bearsie Bear shows hospitality once again. From under the bed, Porkie Porcupine complains that he is very lonely. Promising not to thrash about and being very careful, Porkie Porcupine is invited to settle back in the bed to sleep. Everyone is thankful that Bearsie Bear has a big, big bed and they eventually fall asleep.
      This book has been requested so many times at our house that both my husband and I have memorized the entire story. No matter how many times its read, it still brings giggles to our preschooler. It's a perfect
bedtime story with its unique word rhythms, entertaining characters and
enchanting storyline.
      Time to cozy up for a bedtime story? Pay Bearsie Bear a visit whose
little cottage has always got room for more guests.
