Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is a beautiful day and Bear, who loves sunshine, is ready to play. He has a pair of star-shaped lenses in his sunglasses to protect his eyes while outside. Once in the fresh air, he pulls his wagon full of toys, and readers learn that the wagon is a rectangle. He flies his diamond shaped kite, makes circles with bubbles, plays in a square sandbox, and munches on slices from an oval watermelon. This is a subtle lesson about shapes as well as a message about the joys of being outside in the sunshine. A bright, golden sun appears on almost every page. There is also a surprise for Bear when his parents erect a triangular tent and host a campout picnic. It has certainly been a wonderful day. The brown bears do not look real; they are more like animated teddy bears which may make them more appealing to young children. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews - Kirkus Reviews
Shapes abound in one cool teddy bear's exploration of his yard on a hot, summer day. The tot dons his star-shaped sunglasses and pulls his rectangular red wagon through the great outdoors. Each activity introduces another shape: The little bear blows circle-shaped bubbles, plays in his square sandbox and draws hearts on the sidewalk. His parents make the occasion a family affair; they all munch on oval watermelon and put up a triangle-shaped tent. A golden foil sun with pointed edges serves as a textured mirror and dominates the scene as it sets on the horizon. The very brief text describes the objects in toddler-friendly language: He has "a rectangle wagon / [and] a diamond kite." The bear is bare (except for his totally rad sunglasses); his sizable head rests sturdily on his neck and sports a small, lopsided smile. The focus on shapes extends to the bear's cozy home; paw prints on dresser knobs and heart-shaped cut-outs on the chair continue the theme. This light-hearted romp delivers its concepts painlessly. (Board book. 6 mos.-2)
