School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2

Using the ever-popular action rhyme "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" as a model, Miller teaches young listeners how to be thoughtful library users. Arriving quietly, using shelf markers, page-turning and book handling, using the five-finger rule, and remembering to return the borrowed book are all clearly explained through the rhyming story of a class of bear cubs becoming library users for the first time. Children will quickly pick up the story motions and learn the catchy refrain: "We're going on a book hunt./We're going to a find a good one./We know how./Not too easy,/Not too hard,/But just right." Westcott's illustrations are chock-full of humorous detail that children will enjoy poring over. The library's woodland setting abounds with a variety of animal characters, each of whom finds an appropriate book for its size and species. "Just right" sums ups this addition to library-etiquette titles perfectly.-Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA
