KIRKUS REVIEW

A young bear cub who can’t keep track of his belongings is determined not to lose his new hat. Sam doesn’t mean to lose his things; it just seems to happen. While playing with his best friend Billy, he gets too hot and takes off his red winter coat. Luckily, Billy finds it and delivers it to his door. It is likewise with his green fuzzy mittens; Papa finds them in the garage. When he gets a package from Grandma, he is so excited to show Billy his wonderful blue wooly hat that he takes a shortcut—and loses it. But as luck would have it, it isn’t lost very long. McPhail’s artwork perfectly suits the text, with soft colors, plump figures and expressive faces. Perfect for those loved ones who just can’t seem to remember where they last saw. . . . Too bad everyone’s not as lucky as Sam. (Picture book. 3-7)
