Paddington Bear is the funniest and most endearing fellow. All the Paddington books make GREAT family reading, no matter the age. If you read this in bed with the kids make sure no one is too close to the edge, or they'll fall out of bed laughing. This also makes a fun book to share with a young book club or homeschool lit group. You can do all the fun things Paddington does as part of the reading experience.
