From the Publisher

"The lesson in When I Care is that children should treat others as they wish to be treated."

School Library Journal

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A cuddly bear cub is featured in these two purposeful stories. The lesson in When I Care is that children should treat others as they wish to be treated. The book includes some suggestions for promoting empathy. Scared describes situations in which children feel frightened and how comforting by another helps. It also mentions that being scared can protect them against injury-for example, being afraid of a strange growling dog or climbing too high. Each book begins with a note to adults about how to help children with their feelings. Colorful illustrations of the cub and his animal friends in many familiar situations at home and at school are placed on abundant white space, giving an open, uncluttered look to the pages. There are many stronger, more imaginative stories about these subjects, such as Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who (Random, 1954) and Mercer Mayer's There's a Nightmare in My Closet (Turtleback, 1968). However, on some occasions teachers and caregivers might welcome the guidance given in this series.-Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
