Pictures that fully explain the text help even babies make the important connection between word and meaning. It's never too early to find out that 'Learning to read is Fun'. The small Berenstain Bears go out on a daring nighttime adventure in THE SPOOKY OLD TREE and find thrills and shivers in just the right measure before returning to the safety of home. Four- and five-year olds will enjoy having this story read to them and older children will want to read it themselves.
