Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"In answer to the titular question, the furry fellow ticks off preparations, from decorating the house to wrapping and sending gifts all the way up to the big day," wrote PW. Ages 2-6. (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Jesse Bear and his mother and father look for Christmas and find it through all five senses—the sound of Christmas music, the smell of Christmas cookies, the feel of prickly tree branches, tastes and sights. Simple, unforced rhyme tells the story and detailed, colorful illustrations bring the Christmas season to life. 2000, Simon & Schuster, Ages 2 to 6, $15.00. Reviewer: Dr. Judy Rowen
Margaret Moorman
These happy, gentle, well-rounded books are perfect for their chosen audience. They will be read and reread aloud by grown-up adults who understand that what may seem static or sentimental to an experienced human being can be the sweetest sort of comfort to someone who's just starting out...Where Is Christmas, Jesse Bear? is sweet, and it will appeal to anyone who loves the other Jesse books.
