    Definitely a good read aloud and kind of cute how they lose the family along the way.

Our book today is Nothing Can Frighten A Bear, written by Elizabeth Dale and illustrated by Paula Metcalf, a fun-filled modern fairytale about a bear family dealing with a few nighttime scares. Snuggled into their cave in the woods, the Bear family – Mama, Daddy, Grace, Ben, and Baby – are awakened when Baby is startled from sleep by a mysterious roar. Insisting that he won’t be able to sleep until the source of the noise is identified, the bears head out on an expedition to help Baby face his fears. Various noises greet them but are easily explained away (a crow, a deer, a frog, etc.), all while Daddy Bear cheerfully proclaims that nothing can frighten a bear. But neither he nor Baby have noticed that the other family members are being left behind, caught up in various sticky yet non-threatening situations. And when the two realize they are alone, and more mysterious noises are headed their way, even Daddy Bear begins to feel a little nervous. Especially of those strange shadows approaching from the woods… Wonderfully amusing fun. I don’t want to give away the ending because it’s delightful, but I promise that there is nothing even vaguely scary about this book; the bears are never in danger, and their fear is played for some really enjoyable laughs. The layout of the story is wonderful for encouraging the involvement of little readers, with easily identifiable animals and rhymes that they can join with their adult in reading aloud, and filled with bouncy text that is easy and fun to read. The illustrations are absolutely adorable and filled with lovely details, the length is great, and JJ loved it. A fantastic story about facing the fear of what goes bump in the night, and it’s Baby Bookworm approved! Be sure to check out The Baby Bookworm for more reviews!

    This is a great fun story to read with FS and KS1 children. It uses lots of rhyme and dialogue (which helps with characterisation) to tell the story along with colourful illustrations. In addition, key words are in bold which help with expression when reading aloud. Children could enjoy guessing the word on the next page using the rhyme and it would be a good class story. There are some vague similarities between this and Goldilocks and the Three Bears which some children may pick up on, particu This is a great fun story to read with FS and KS1 children.

There are some vague similarities between this and Goldilocks and the Three Bears which some children may pick up on, particularly at the beginning. There’s also repetition of the phrase “nothing can frighten a bear” which adds to the enjoyment for younger children.

    Bears, Rhyming, counting, what more could you ask for. The illustrations are adorable and this would make a great book for a child who might be fearing those monsters under the bed or in the closet. I started to worry as the book came to an end that I might not find out who made the roar from the beginning but luckily they wrap things up wonderfully. The rhymes of the story flowed beautifully and made for a wonderful read.

    Bears are woken up by a scary thing and must go find out what it is. Father is good at reminding the littlest of the group that Nothing Can Frighten a Bear. However that statement is put to the test when Father bear turns around and does not find what he expects to find. Cute story, easy to read, makes a great story to read aloud.

    Elizabeth Dale's "Nothing Can Frighten a Bear" is a rhyming read-aloud that really capitalizes on its page turns - making young readers guess at the word to finish the previous page's line. It's perfect for kids who may be a little spooked in the dark. I also loved the metallic detailing on the cover!

    This is a cute story about being scared of things that go bump in the night. I think it's perfect for a bear, family, or night storytime. It's about a family that goes out to look for what scared their little cub. It turns out to be that he woke himself up with his roar while he was sleeping. Super cute.

    This is an adorable twist on "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" in which the bear-family is looking for the scary thing. I loved the rhyming and rhythm of the words. The illustrations are adorable. This would work best for K-2nd grade. This is an adorable twist on "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" in which the bear-family is looking for the scary thing. I loved the rhyming and rhythm of the words.

    Many pages in the book are literally page-turners. It is a rhyming book and in many instances the reader has to turn the page to get the final word in the rhyme. This creates a feeling of excitement and anticipation for the reader...like a little cliff hanger.

    I think this book is very funny and would buy this one to read to children and have them show me why nothing frightens this bear until. . . and then enjoy the ending. Bear family goes out on a night walk and things happen. There are 5 bears in this family not 3 and written in a rhyme scheme.

    What's that sound outside? Is it a monster? The bear family goes outside to see what is could be..... A suspenseful tale to be sure for young ones. Super cute illustrations make for a fun read aloud. What's that sound outside? Is it a monster? The bear family goes outside to see what is could be..... A suspenseful tale to be sure for young ones.
