KIRKUS REVIEW

A rather slim but shaggy and perpetually smiling mother bear and her baby disport themselves through the seasons in this companion to 2007’s Me and My Dad! A predictable doggerel (“We make strings of flowers / and Mom is so clever / That her daisy chain / seems to go on forever”) keeps readers in an oral full nelson while Edgson’s equally predictable soft-edged full-bleed illustrations show the teddy-bear–like sow and cub plaiting flowers, sliding on ice, playing in leaves, swimming and just loving each other. An easy sell in this season, but both mothers and their children deserve better than this calculatedly cute concoction. (Picture book. 2-5)
