    I read this book for my Family Storytime and the children adored it! This is a great book to encourage the use of vocabulary and encourages an open discussion; Columbus Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the State Fair are themes covered. I don't think that this book would work well for a large storytime group, but it's a must read for one-on-one or small storytime groups.SummaryIn this fourth and final book in Karel Hayes's acclaimed Visitors series, the beloved family of bears gets in another round of adventures as they experience the full enjoyment of a New England autumn.

    We picked this book up at the library because I wanted to snag some fall/Halloween books before they were all gone! This book would be perfect for a beginning reader. As a bedtime book for my daughter, it was a little too easy. There were only a few words on each page - at most a sentence. We would linger looking at the pictures a little longer than we would with a wordier book, but really the book was finished much too quickly.My daughter did enjoy the pictures. She loved watching what the bears would do. The story told within the pictures was nice though. I like that the illustrations actually gave us more of the story than the words did. However, since I have a two year old, she is much too young to really grasp the story in the pictures. I tried to point things out like the bears crashing the fair when it closed and the turkeys sitting at the table (rather than cooked on the table like you expected). But it went over her head.So I think this book would be better for older preschoolers and K-1st graders who are learning to read and can also look at the pictures to see what is being told through them as well. It's a neat concept, just not quite right for my 2 year old at bedtime. We'll probably revisit this one in a few years.

    Not sure whether I've read any of the other books in this series, but I liked this one. The illustrations are adorable - not too over-the-top, not too minimalistic. Juuuust right, to quote another bear story. :-pI liked the story, too - the logistics of trick or treating was adorable, and I was glad for the last-page turkey fakeout. (How does the food chain work in stories where animals are sapient, anyway??)
