Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-Loveable Bear is back in Wilson's new rhyming book (Margart K.McElderry Bks, 2012). Bear is bored and misses his friends, so he decides to cook a large feast for them. But when he goes to his cupboards he finds that they are bare, and he doesn't know what to do. One by one, Mouse, Hare, Badger, and all of his friends stop by with food to share. When Bear feels bad because he has nothing to contribute, his pals remind him that he has stories to share with the group. All the friends say "thanks" as they share a big meal together. Jane Chapman's earth-tone illustrations depict the cute woodland animals with sweet facial expressions. John McDonough narrates in a rich tone, giving each creature a unique voice. Page-turn signals are optional. A great choice as Thanksgiving story or for lessons about being thankful or having good manners.-Jenny Ventling, Dayton Metro Library, OH (c) Copyright 2013.

In Bear's eighth woodland outing, he is bored in his cave, so he plans a gathering-but his cupboards are bare. Serendipitously, his gentle friends stop by, one by one, bringing food: Badger brings fish, Hare brings muffins, and a trio of birds brings pears and herbs for tea. Though Bear regretfully admits that he has nothing to offer in exchange, they assure him that his presence is all that they need. Chapman's glowing acrylics create a joyful atmosphere in a story that obliquely references Thanksgiving, but functions as a reminder of the importance of gratitude any time of year. Ages 3-7. (Sept.)
