    I ve heard a lot of negativity regarding this book, especially that it is notoriously racist However, although it does feature a few dated stereotypes, I don t know if I would really call it racist In fact, the book is not only an entertaining fantasy story, but it also teaches younger readers about looking past the stereotypes in toys, books and the media and learning the true history and cultural diversity of humanity O

    Golly, I must have read this book a hundred times There was just something so magical, so appealing about it I hope kids today are still reading, I think it s timeless.Reread 2018 Really interesting to read this aloud as an adult, and aloud to my kids I was worried that it would be racist, and sort of But mostly in the way the Little Bear talks He s new to speaking English, so it s a little short and abrupt, and I think she took it too far, but not to the poin

    What a racist, dull, unimaginative book Full of stereotypes and negative images, this book should be taught only to teach young people how NOT to write books I only read this book for a grad class and would never recommend it to anyone First, the writing is cliched and boring Secondly, the way Lynne Reid Banks has portrayed the Indian apparently, Little Bear is Iroquois is racist and offensive Little Bear only speaks in grunts and incomplete sentences, and the cowboy B
