Would your child enjoy dressing this bear family for the day? Will the Bears go on a teddy bears' picnic? Or are they getting ready to eat their porridge and maybe meet a little blond haired girl who's being a bit naughty?
Although dressing up the Bear family will be fun, that's not the only reason this puzzle is a good choice for your child. Learning to read emotions on a person's -- or a bear's -- face is a skill that takes much experience. Children often misinterpret looks on a person's face and so have a difficult time responding appropriately. A puzzle, such as one of these Melissa and Doug bear dress-up puzzles, will give your child experience with matching a facial expression with the emotion being expressed.
As with any puzzle experience, your child will grow intellectually and have fun at the same time.
