This is the first book I ever read from this author and fell in love with it. It has been part of my literary reading to my young students for over twenty years. I am overjoyed to have my own copy. YAY!!!!

A little twisted, but funny none the less. My younger son (3 years) didn't get it until we pointed it out in the illustrations, but my 5 year old laughed herself silly

The year is 1969. What is going on? Just in the month of January: The New York Jets defeat the Baltimore Colts in the Super Bowl. Elvis launches his comeback album which includes "Suspicious Minds" and "In the Ghetto." The Beatles give their last public performance on the roof of Apple Records. Chalkboards are still black. And sometime in 1969 Martha Alexander publishes her first "Blackboard Bear," a paean to imaginary friends.

The premise is simple and simply related mostly through illustrations (also by Alexander): Little brother wants to play with big brother and his friends, but, of course, is too little. The final insult: "Go play with your teddy bear."

Little brother is so hurt and disappointed that he throws teddy bear out the window (Remember in 1969 when we still left windows open?)

Now then, let's get serious. Pop into his head--the idea of an imaginary bear wearing a fierce red collar. A bear amenable ONLY to little brother's thoughts and desires. Hold my bear's leash? Not a chance. Pat my bear? No way. Ride my bear? "He only wants me to ride him."

Pay-backs. Imagination can do that. Is this a mean book? Not in any sense. Is this a cruel, vicious book--after all, Bear licks the figures of Big Brother and his friends drawn on the blackboard right down into his stomach. Along with the chalk-drawn pot of honey. Yum, all full.

Empowerment. That's what this book is about, temporary empowerment, something most children need from time to time. According to many writers (Freud, May, Estes, Strauss-Levi), fairy tales inculcate values and fill needs, among their many uses. Although, technically, "Blackboard Bear" is not a fairy tale, it serves the purpose of one.

In the process of "weeding," or ridding my school library of old, unread books, I found this one that hasn't been checked out in years. I read it to my kindergarten class for their feedback. They loved it. It stays! (A new copy would be nice, but when money is short, just put on a new mylar cover, discard the old, dirty one, and the book looks pretty good. I would love the entire series....maybe after the fall book fair!)

"Blackboard Bear"--a definite keeper!

My son picked this book at the library. The illustrations were cute, and it was part of a series, so I thought it would be fun to start with this, the original book. My husband and I were both shocked and disappointed in the book. Here is the summary.
A little boy becomes an outcast based on his age and size. None of the other kids will let him join their reindeer games, so he makes his own imaginary friend--a large bear drawn on a blackboard. His friend is so cool that those same kids who had rejected him from their games want to join in. I was disappointed when the protagonist in turn rejects them on the basis of being too big, etc. The story takes an ugly turn in the end, when you discover that the imaginations of the little boy for his friend Blackboard Bear is that he is eating all of the boys who were unkind to him in the beginning of the story. I was horrified and sickened. What could have been a story about kindness, forgiveness, overcoming adversity in a healthy way, ends up as a story about bitterness, hatred, hurting people in turn, and ultimately choosing isolation instead of community. Not at all the principles or character that I hope to teach my children.

When I was little I'd checked this book out of the library so many times my mom eventually bought me my own copy. I loved it so much, in fact, that I learned to read on this book! The games the kids play may be not socially acceptable anymore (cowboys & indians, cops & robbers), but they accurately capture the era in which the book was written and certainly pale compared to the book's payoff. A must-have!

My 2 year old loves another blackboard bear book, so I got this one thinking she might like it. The story takes a creepy turn, though, with the bear eating the older kids who wouldn't include the main character in their playing. It's not explicit, but strongly suggested. I think this one might be going to the used bookstore.
