Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Barton's bright artwork also brings humor to a spare, repetitive text in Where's the Bear? by Charlotte Pomerantz. A bear sighting brings all the villagers into the forest, where a close encounter sends them scurrying home again in an excursion just scary enough for youngest listeners. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A young woman who is picking berries in the woods runs back to town to tell the people she has seen a bear. With tools in hand, they leave their work and follow her back to the woods. The search reveals many animals, and at last the elusive bear is sighted. The people run back to their homes as the bear pursues them. Once they are safely inside the bear has nothing to do but return to the woods. In a combination of wordless pages and simple, repetitive text, Barton and Pomerantz create just the right amount of tension in this small-sized board book. Preschoolers will be able to "read" this book to adults once they can recognize the words. For younger children, there are many things to point out and talk about in the illustrations. Highly successful when it was first published, it still stands as a good story today. 2003 (orig. 1984), Greenwillow/HarperFestival/HarperCollins,
