Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Bear decides to throw a party to celebrate the beauty of the full moon. He invites his animal friends but no one comes; they are all either tired, busy, or uninterested. Bear refuses to give up, and, singing a song he's made up for the occasion, he dances in a clearing by himself, until gradually his friends are drawn to the music and the moon and join in. Bear is proven right for feeling that opportunities ought to be taken advantage of because, "You never know what might happen." Digitally enhanced acrylic paintings are done in purples and blues to portray the nighttime scenes, which sometimes are a little too dark and obscure to distinguish the animals clearly. The words of Bear's song are given, but the original music is not. Without the ability to involve the audience in singing, the book loses some of its unique appeal. Anne Hunter's Possum's Harvest Moon (Houghton, 1996) offers a very similar story with a more informative text on what the different woodland creatures do when winter approaches, as well as more appealing pictures. Not essential, but a pleasant selection.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
