Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Hare is a very small animal in comparison to many of the other animals in the woods. His size makes him feel unimportant. An encounter with a large brown bear changes all that in just one day. Hare and Brown Bear become best friends as they play, eat, laugh and talk together. Brown Bear's long hibernation is not enough to separate the two friends. Hare just waits patiently for Brown Bear to awaken from his sleep. The illustrations, also by the author, invite the reader to just sit and enjoy the scenery. Originally published in Switzerland under the title Freunde, this book will be one parents buy for their children and keep for the grandchildren. It is filled with enjoyable moments. 2000, North-South Books, Ages 4 to 8, $15.95. Reviewer: Joyce Rice
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-In spite of their tremendous difference in size, Hare and Bear enjoy playing together. Lovely, delicate watercolor washes fill the oversized pages with the summer meadows and rocks of their playground, and then change to cold winter scenes when it's time for Bear to hibernate. When spring comes again, Hare awakens his friend and they sit on the rocks contentedly watching the sunset and anticipating the days to follow. The book would fit several units, including seasons, size, and lifestyle differences. It could definitely be used to spark discussion on the nature of being a friend. These endearing pals should be welcome in any picture-book collection.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
