And so Jesse Bear starts his day. It isn't really an unusual day for a little bear, but the weather is warm and sunny and just right for all the things Jesse Bear enjoys doing - like playing in his sandbox, chasing butterflies, and swinging in his swing.

Lilting verse and exuberant paintings combine to make Jesse Bear's Day a very special one indeed, in a book

Overview

And so Jesse Bear starts his day. It isn't really an unusual day for a little bear, but the weather is warm and sunny and just right for all the things Jesse Bear enjoys doing - like playing in his sandbox, chasing butterflies, and swinging in his swing.

Lilting verse and exuberant paintings combine to make Jesse Bear's Day a very special one indeed, in a book that even the youngest readers will want to return to again and again.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The rhymes...are clean and catchy and beg to be recited...The illustrations...combine freshness of color with freshness of attitude, and the result is a cheery, uncluttered exuberance."

School Library Journal, starred review

Barnes & Noble Staff
This lilting poem follows Jesse Bear and the things that he wears throughout the day. In the morning, he dons "my shirt of red pulled over my head," while at noon his apparel is "carrots and peas / And a little more please." Night time brings "sleep in my eyes / And stars in the skies / Moon on my bed / And dreams in my head." Degen's cheerful illustrations help capture the playful interaction between toddlers and parent.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Jesse Bear playfully "wears" not only his shirt and pants, but also the sun on his legs, sand on his arm, bathwater and bubbles, sleep in his eyes, etc. PW described this work as "ingenuous yet never coy.... An appealing book to share with a young child." Ages 2-5. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Many new board books are re-releases of beloved early books, now made more durable for babies who begin by loving their rhythm and rhyme in infancy and continue to love them as toddlers. They hold up better in board book format. A classic making a new board book appearance is Nancy Carlstrom's bouncy Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear?
