"Popular little Jesse Bear returns to answer the question, 'How do you say it today?' 'It' as children find out at the end of the book, is saying 'I love you!' Through the months, Jesse comes up with new ways of demonstrating his feelings. . . . As always, Degen's bright watercolors work in a happy tandem with Carlstrom's infectious rhymes. A good way to learn about months and holidays, or read it just for fun" ("Booklist").
