Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Pre S-Grade 2-A tender tale about the unconditional love shared by a mother bear and her son. After a busy day spent "helping" Mama in the garden and around the house, Little Charlie is a mess. When his mother asks him if he is ready to get into the tub, he replies, "I'd do anything for you!" As she bathes him and prepares him for bed, he gives numerous examples of the many ways he would prove his love ("I'd swim to the end of the bathtub…. And all the way back" or "I'd climb to the top of a really tall tree…"). Mama uses his promise to get him tucked in and fast asleep without a fuss. Typefaces of various sizes add expression to the text. The illustrations feature warm, autumn-hued colors sprinkled with colorful pastels. Small vignettes depict each of the things that Little Charlie would do for his mother. A perfect choice for bedtime or as a cozy read-aloud.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL

We are an adoptive family, and while this book is not written with the adoptive family in mind, it is really great in that respect. For anyone this would be a great and sweet story, but for kids who don't know what a mommy is for or how to behave with one (an older adopted kid).... this is great. My little guys have started doing normal kid things for me and saying, "I'd do anything for you Mommy!" in response to this wonderful book. Good book!

This is the most special book I read with my daughter at night. It is about a little boy (bear) who only wants to help his mom and it is hard for him because he keeps on making a mess. He'll do "anything" for her. The mom in the end plays into the idea and ends up convincing him to let her tuck him in instead. 5 Stars!!!! Best book I have. Wish I had more like this.
