Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Little Bear from Me and My Dad! is back, this time with its mother. The prose is simple-"My mom's not afraid/ of the dark or the night./ And I'm brave like her/ when she's holding me tight!"-and the illustrations are fuzzy-soft (mom and baby look more like stuffed animals than actual bears). They "glide" through bubbly blue-green water alongside graceful fish; afterward, "mom dries her fur," and Little Bear wiggles its bottom "just like her," their features obscured by the mist of the evaporating water. Predictably adorable. Ages 4-8. (Apr.)

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
This companion to the New York Times bestselling Me and My Dad! celebrates the love between a little bear cub and his doting mama bear. Constant companions through seasonal play, the two make daisy chains, call out echoes from a cave, balance apples on their noses, go ice-skating and swimming, and romp in autumn leaves. Little bear is impressed by all of his mother's superior abilities—"We make strings of flowers/ and Mom is so clever/ That her daisy chain/ seems to go on forever!"—and, safe in her sheltering embrace, knows that s/he will grow up be just like her: "My mom is so special/ in every way./ I want to be just like/ my mommy one day." Mama and cub are completely adorable, whether curled up together in a field of daisies or wiggling their bottoms to dry off after a dip. Ritchie's text is simple and sweet; Edgson's art is soft and luminous; together they have created a picture book that will gather reading mothers and their little ones into its embrace.

PreS

A bear cub delights in spending a fun-filled day with his mother. While adults may cringe at the grammatically incorrect title and uneven meter, preschoolers with an affinity for schmaltz might like it. "We make strings of flowers/and Mom is so clever/That her daisy chain/seems to go on forever!" The unbridled admiration the cub displays toward his mom is also evident in Edgson's soft, bright acrylic paintings. Overall, however, the story pales next to Anthony Browne's succinct, sublime My Mom (Farrar, 2005) or the innocent, cartoonish glee of Karen Katz's Mommy Hugs (S & S, 2006). Devoted fans of Ritchie's Me and My Dad! (Good Bks., 2007) may want this companion. Otherwise, it is unessential to any but the largest picture-book collections.-Rebecca Dash, New York Public Library

Kirkus Reviews
A rather slim but shaggy and perpetually smiling mother bear and her baby disport themselves through the seasons in this companion to 2007's Me and My Dad! A predictable doggerel ("We make strings of flowers / and Mom is so clever / That her daisy chain / seems to go on forever") keeps readers in an oral full nelson while Edgson's equally predictable soft-edged full-bleed illustrations show the teddy-bear-like sow and cub plaiting flowers, sliding on ice, playing in leaves, swimming and just loving each other. An easy sell in this season, but both mothers and their children deserve better than this calculatedly cute concoction. (Picture book. 2-5)
