Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-The much-loved, irrepressible Jesse Bear is back in another adventure. Here, readers are introduced to his extended family as they gather for a reunion and have fun dancing and singing under the stars, going on hayrides, and playing croquet. The cub is right in the middle of the action, playing with his cousins and trying new foods and activities. Carlstrom's breezy, bouncy rhymes describe all of the tastes, smells, and sights of an active and loving family get-together. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations are bright, cheery, and uncluttered. Fans of Jesse Bear will be more than satisfied with this child's-eye view of an event that many youngsters experience.-Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
