From the first glance at this festive picture book, kids know they are in for a treat. Pajama Bedtime Bear is a cute teddy who is quite excited about his birthday. His special day arrives, and the mailman delivers some surprise packages. Although P. B. Bear is eager to open them, he knows he has some tasks to finish first. After his friend Dermott arrives, he bakes a fantastic cake. When his other friends arrive, they open the surprise boxes and find a train, which they happily put together. Primed for a picnic, the chums pack their food and presents and head to the country. After a day of eating and celebrating, this lively bunch heads home. Sleepy and content, P. B. Bear's ready for some shut-eye.
Expert photography and an adorable cast of friends combine to create a fun read for youngsters. The elaborate details, from the cheerful cake to P. B.'s bear-inspired accessories, will captivate readers. And the adorable faces of P. B. Bear's friends -- Dermott the dog, Russell the rabbit, Lucy the lamb, and Hilda the hen -- are so appealing that kids will be drawn in immediately. The story also uses images in place of many words, so that younger readers can follow along. And the endpapers reveal all the images with their corresponding words underneath. (Amy Barkat)
