Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-- An uneven and disjointed collection of stories, poems, songs, and rhymes about bears in general and teddy bears in particular. The material ranges from Edward Lear's limericks, to ``The Teddy Bears' Picnic,'' to selections from Milne's Winnie the Pooh . Several folktales appear, including ``Goldilocks'' and ``Snow White and Rose Red.'' Where illustrations are not originally supplied, Schmidt provides syrupy sweet, silly cartoon bears surrounded by rose garlands reminiscent of those found on greeting cards. A gift book for indulgent grandparents, but not worthy of purchase for a library. --Ruth K. MacDonald, Purdue University Calumet, Hammond, IN
