Meant to reflect in some ways the adventures of a child, it is fun to see how a bear gets around in London. Because each chapter is a separate story, it is not necessary to have read the first book in the series. While each chapter would make a great read aloud, the older writing style and British vocabulary of the book might make it more difficult for independent American readers. A beloved English classic, More About Paddington is a great book to get to know the loveable Paddington.
