Editorial Reviews

Booklist
The enduring relationship between mother and child is mirrored through Bearcub and Mama. Little ones will identify with Bearcub as he develops new skills and learns how to accept separation despite the fears it causes. ? The soft-edged acrylic artwork mirrors the colors of the seasons.
School Library Journal
PreS-Bearcub follows his mama, learning how to catch a fish, dig for grubs, and climb a tree to find honey. At first, "Bearcub always knows where his mama is" but as he grows, he learns to leave her sometimes. While playing with ice along the shore of a stream, he does not notice the snowstorm that is descending on him. Although afraid, he remembers how to follow the trail to his den and comforts himself with the words of his mother, "All storms pass." Having overcome his fear, Bearcub sleeps safely and awakens happily to his mother's greeting. The painterly spreads, done in acrylics on canvas, use serene colors, with mother bear and cub depicted in a warm brownish orange. Story and illustrations create a superb read-aloud that is certain to appeal to most children, who will connect with Bearcub's uneasiness about growing up. Pair this one with Kathy Mallat's Brave Bear (Walker, 1999) for two fine tales about bravery and courage.-Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Bearcub always knows where his Mama is. By her side, he discovers how to catch a fish, dig for grubs, climb a tree and find honey. As he grows, he sometimes leaves her to feast in the cornfield or play in the waterfall. But the day he finds frost and ice on the shore, he has so much fun skidding and splashing, that he doesn't see the snowstorm coming. Blinded by snow, he howls for Mama, but no answer, so he follows the scent of his trail until he finds familiar trees and home. However, Mama isn't in their den. Bearcub remembers her strength and the lesson that all storms pass and in the morning, she's there licking him. The textured effect of the acrylics on canvas adds dimension to the charming double spreads. Some focal points zoom in on Bearcub's head, subtly accentuating his feelings of being alone. Preschoolers will find the heartwarming story reassuring and comforting and as appealing and snuggly as fuzzy slippers. (Picture book. 3-5)
