KIRKUS REVIEW

A comforting tale about a bear whose day is very similar to that of a child. He gets up, squeezes his teddy bear, and eats a small breakfast of grapes, cheese, and tea. After some wake-up scratching, face-washing, and teeth-brushing, he feeds his pets and sets off on a hike. A picnic and a long walk later, the bear turns around and heads home to his cozy bed. Selby’s saltwater- taffy pastel illustrations add to the light, airy feeling of the tale, and details (sunflowers turn indigo in moonlight) create a reassuring sense of the passing of time. This is peaceful territory, intended for the very young. (Picture book. 1-3)
