Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Printed on cardboard with a soft-to-the-touch cover, this unabashedly syrupy ode to parent and child stars a mother bear and her son, who enjoy a day’s worth of adventures together on a chilly day. Carr’s homey rhymes don’t feel overly conventional, thanks to lots of hyphenated phrases and dropped g’s, and she establishes a bouncy, staccato rhythm from the get-go: “You’re my rough-and-ready guy./ Tip-top tumble, don’t you cry./ Kiss the smeary tears good-bye./ See? Good as new!” Howarth’s mixed-media scenes create a friendly community for the two bears, who are dressed in layers of brightly colored winter-wear, to explore. It’s a cozy reminder of kids’ central place in their parents’ hearts and minds. Up to age 3. (Dec.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Come and spend a day with a young bear and his mother. It starts off with bundling up to head out for a shopping trip during which they step high and scurry and scat. On the way home, there is a short excursion to the park where our young fellow gets a push on the swings and climbs the monkey bars. Then it is a race up the walk to the house and time to put the groceries away and enjoy dinner. Then it is time for a bath and off to bed where books are read and "muzzle-nuzzle snug in bed 'cause I love YOU!" The illustrations are full of details and reasonably consistent. An adult might wonder about the apparently light shopping bag and all the items that seem to have come out of it as shown on the next spread. The text is difficult to read with lots of made up phrases and, in several places, strings of words that don't make a lot of sense "Race you, chase you to and fro this avenue!" is an example. There are certainly better books showing what happens in the course of a young child's day. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
