Little Brown Bear

Elizabeth Upham 1942
illustrated by Marjorie Hartwell

This was a popular bedtime read for Charlotte.  It's an old book, but she got such a kick out of the stories, especially the "Little Brown Bear's April Fool's Day" one.  When Little Brown Bear plays his trick on Father Bear Charlotte just laughed and laughed.  The next day she even tried to play it on me!  (I knew what she was up to but I went along with it).

Sometimes these simple vintage books really are the best.  I'm always drawn to them because of the artwork and the colors, but many times we enjoy the writing just as much.
