Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear?

( 7 )

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 Barnes & Noble
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?
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."

    My Child's Favorite Book

    My two boys loved this book as small children. I read it to them so many times we had to replace it. I bought it as a baby shower gift and my 21 year old son requested I get one to read to the children he will have one day.

    Favorite Book as a child

    I remember my mom reading this book to me when I was little. 19 years later I still have the teddy bear that I named Jesse Bear because I loved this book so much. When I have children, this is the first book that I'm buying.

    My kids clicked with this book immediately!

    I simply read the title to my two youngest kids, and they were hooked already! They have asked for it over and over in the two weeks since we bought it. I've already decided it will be one of the books I will give as a baby gift.

    Awesome!

    What first interested me in the Jesse Bear books was the name..my name is jessica and...my parents called me Bear. But, when i was younger and couldnt read i would sit on the floor and try and follow along with the cassette tapes. When i got old enough to read..i would sit on the floor and read the books all day. I would recommend this book to anyone of any age!! =)

    More than just a name

    I originally looked at this book because my son is named Jesse. Upon reading the book, I found it to be sweet and enjoyable for any child. Jesse is only 6 months old, but loves to have this book read to him because he recognizes his name in the story. As an elementary school teacher, I can honestly say that this is quality children's literature that kids of all ages (and names) will enjoy.
