    The bear under the stairs is centred around a boy named William whom having one day seen a furry figure inside the cellar believes that there is a bear living under his stairs William fears that if the bear goes hungry, then he may decide to eat William As a result, William decides to feed the bear a wide range of food in order to appease its appetite Eventually the remains of the food let s of a stench that the rest of the household can smell, when Williams mother decides to investigate they The bear under the stairs is centred around a boy named William whom having one day seen a furry figure inside the cellar believes that there is a bear living under his stairs William fears that if the bear goes hungry, then he may decide to eat William As a result, William decides to feed the bear a wide range of food in order to appease its appetite Eventually the remains of the food let s of a stench that the rest of the household can smell, when Williams mother decides to investigate they find that the cellar is rather empty This is an interesting story for children mainly due to many interpretations that children will have regarding the story.As a child I personally believed that the bear in the story was a figment of Williams s imagination However, after recently reading it to a class, one child pointed out to me that the bear is actually hidden behind the door of cellar when Williams s mother decides to investigate This book is certainly ideal for a classroom wherein the promotion of discussion is hoping to be established Not only that, but the key vocabulary inside the text i.e the name of the various food and fruits that William feeds the bear is easy to teach with the use of this text Therefore I would recommend this book for children aged 3 as well as adults who are feeling rather nostalgic

    This was a story that we read with my reception class It is about a young boy who is certain there is a bear that lives under the stairs He is scared of this bear, then eventually goes to look under the stairs with his mother to find there is no bear Although the book is full of beautiful sometimes scary illustrations and visual descriptions, I thought it was a very difficult story for young children to make sense of I acknowledge the fact that it may relate to some children s fears of dar This was a story that we read with my reception class It is about a young boy who is certain there is a bear that lives under the stairs He is scared of this bear, then eventually goes to look under the stairs with his mother to find there is no bear Although the book is full of beautiful sometimes scary illustrations and visual descriptions, I thought it was a very difficult story for young children to make sense of I acknowledge the fact that it may relate to some children s fears of dark isolated rooms and big furniture looking like scary creatures, or even that these things can be our imagination This is what the story builds up for the audience to believe but then we are contradicted once again and the existence of the bear is confirmed I thought the ending had an unnecessary twist and would leave children to continue being afraid of the dark, and the scary creatures that they believe exist in the dark

    A lovely short story with beautiful illustrations about a young boy dealing with a common fear for things lurking in the dark I like how it progresses from his initial feelings of fear and how he attempts to cope with it in his own way, to then sharing his fears with someone who helps to overcome it This could be used to encourage children that any fears or problems they have can be overcome when shared with others.

    This was the first book I ever read I was 3 and a half years old and loved this book I still have my copy as well It is an adorable book with beautiful illustrations I highly recommend it

    Cute little book, my toddler and kindergartner enjoy, addresses children s fears of the unseen how they can let their imagination run wild I would have given five stars but there is a tiny sinister streak in the book and the bear is not warm and fuzzy, so is always reminding me of that horror film, The Orphanage.

    I think its a really good book for children I think it was a very relatable topic for children I think it would be a great class read maybe as part of a PSHCE section or if it came up as a worry for children I would recommend this book to children.

    William thinks he sees a bear that lives in the closet under the stairs and he keeps his eyes closed whenever he s near the closet To keep the bear from eating him he throws food in the closet, and slams the door A tale of imagined fear of the unknown is what drives this tale.

    The artwork in this book is beautiful, and the story itself is a little bittersweet 4 5 stars.
