Editorial Reviews

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

    I read this book in my school library to 2nd and 3rd graders. I used it
    to introduce the concepts of just right books-ones that are not too hard
    or too easy for my young students. After reading, I explained in detail
    how to use the Five Finger Rule. It worked, but I didn't think it was
    spectacular. My students, however, surprised me by going back to their
    teachers and saying how much they liked the book. That doesn't happen
    very often. Several of the teachers came in and asked to see the book.
    I would call that a success. The kids seem to really enjoy the book and
    I would recommend it to school librarians.
