Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
As John Prater's series heroes Baby Bear and Grandbear prepare for the holiday in Is It Christmas?, Baby Bear wonders who their "special visitors" will turn out to be. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Kind, patient Grandbear and exuberant, vulnerable Baby Bear are back in their seventh adventure. Energetic watercolor vignettes and full-page illustrations provide a funny counterpoint to the succinct text, as the animals clean, cook, play in the snow, find a tree, and decorate the house. Prater brilliantly conveys the newness of life for Baby Bear, the wonder and seriousness of a toddler discovering the world. Because the intergenerational characters interact in a deeply satisfying, humorous, and loving way, this welcome addition will be as pleasing to adult readers as it is to young listeners.-S. P. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Roly-poly, golden-brown Baby Bear lives with Grandbear (who could be either a grandmother or grandfather bear) in a cozy home with all the accoutrements of modern life. Together they prepare for the arrival of Christmas: making cards, cleaning, baking, finding a Christmas tree, and decorating the tree and house, with time off to play in the snow together, creating a snow bear with sticks for claws. Grandbear explains each step to Baby Bear, who impatiently awaits the big day. The pair enjoys a fireside picnic on Christmas Eve, and the story ends with all the bear relatives arriving on Christmas morning. Prater's bears are expressive and delightful, especially in the snow scene with Grandbear serving as a sled for Baby Bear. There isn't much plot here outside the steps of getting ready for the holiday, but parents may find this useful to introduce toddlers and younger preschoolers to the concept of preparing for Christmas gradually. (Picture book. 2-5)
