Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Toy bears in abundance inhabit Alice Schertle's Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, illus. by Linda Hill Griffith. Readers can take their pick of "Bears in striped pajamas,/ Bears in running shoes./ Miles of Bears. Piles of bears./ Care for a bear? Just choose." The rhyming verse and intricately detailed artwork evoke a cozy, bygone era. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Teddy Bears are ubiquitous and this collection of poems and pictures will leave no doubt about that fact. The opening spread depicts a store with lots of teddy bears and a poem that addresses the great variety—"Small bears on the top shelves, / Big bears on the bottom. / Piles of bears. Miles of bears." In many of the poems, the bears take on human characteristics—they slide down banisters and pinch and poke each other as well as the other stuffed animals in the child bedroom. For the most part, these are bears that are friendly cuddly and happy to be loved by a child. The poems and the pictures will prove to be delightful for little ones who still have active imaginations and flights of fancy — particularly those who adore Corduroy and still keep their teddy bears close by for comfort such as the one celebrated in the poem "Barely Bear"—"Wrinkles, lumps, / patches, creases— / Barely Bear's / been loved to pieces." 2003, HarperCollins,
— Marilyn Courtot <%ISBN%>0688168701
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Thirteen cheerful poems about a subject that has enormous child appeal. All are bouncy and readable, as in these lines from "Teddy Bear Store": "Miles of bears. Piles of bears./Care for a bear? Just choose." Children will recognize many of the situations: scrubbing a stuffed animal clean, piling teddy bears into seats on a make-believe bus, dressing up a special bear, and, of course, loving one: "Wrinkles, lumps,/patches, creases-/Barely Bear's/been loved to pieces." Griffith's joyful full-color paintings capture the essence of each selection; in addition, one develops a small visual story that perceptive children will notice. A cat, for example, covers its eyes as the bears slide down a banister; a chair is knocked over and abandoned after it pounces; a handy teddy bear sews up his own middle seam. The art is detailed and clever, and complements the poems well. Children will see themselves and their precious stuffed-animal friends reflected in these pages.-Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Illustrated by a teddy bear specialist, these 14 new rhymes are just the ticket for a spell of quality lap time. Schertle (When the Moon Is High, p. 397) writes of bears in chairs, and bears on stairs--"Bears on the staircase / all in a row, / bears on the banister-- / LOOK OUT BELOW!"--bears messy and neat; bears loud, quiet, or both in turn; good little bears and those having a "Bad Bear Day." Griffith (Blessings and Prayers for Little Bears, 2002, etc.) places fuzzy, animated teddies in cozy domestic scenes chockablock with brightly colored, exactly rendered toys, children’s clothing, patterned fabrics, household pets and the occasional doting child. A cockle-warming successor, all in all, to Michael and Kathleen Hague’s Alphabears (1984) and Numbears (1986), or, of course, Ruth Krauss’s classic rhyme. (Picture book/poetry. 5-9)
