Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The big friendly fellow from Bear in a Square and Bear on a Bike enjoys all kinds of weather in Bear in Sunshine, also by Blackstone, illus. by Debbie Harter. Bear sings in the rain, makes snow-bears in winter and stands on his head in the moonlight. A final spread reviews the seasons.

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1-Bear is shown out and about in different types of weather throughout the year in this appealing picture book. He plays in the sunshine; sings in the rain, … la Gene Kelly; paints when it's misty; and builds snow bears in the winter. Each page contains a single line of rhyming text and is complemented by a double-page watercolor scene done in vibrant hues. The use of thick watercolor paper adds depth and texture to bring the sky, hills, and bears to life. The words flow smoothly and the pictures will project well for storytime. A slight but appealing addition.

My 17-month old daughter LOVES this book. In fact, she loves all the Bear books. There are so many things to point out on each page and its easy to relate the text to everyday life so the books lend themselves to extensions. The bright colors and warm illustrations are inviting and fun!

This is likely the best children's book we have in our collection (which is quite expansive). As a parent one can find themselves reading a book hundreds of time at bedtime. Although at first I wasn't crazy about reading it everyday, I realized there were other aspects to the book I could talk about to my child. The illustrations are beautiful, there are various animals represented in multiples so we can often count how many fish we see, what color they are. How many bumble bees we see and so forth. I like that this book isn't limited to just it's storyline. It is now part of my baby shower gift package for other parents.

The preferred choice of books for our nearly 2 year old! The colors are great, good story, and the books are sturdy. His favorites are Bear About Town, and Bears Busy Family. But he does like all the series and is beginning to read because of them we believe. Our 5 year old who began reading at 2, reads these to our youngest as well and he still enjoys. Any Bear series is recommended by us.

My daughter already has this book memorized and is just 26 months old! She has loved it for over a year now.

It has great pictures, rhyme scheme and integration of concepts with the pictures. Everyone in my family is a primary grade school teacher at some level and they all LOVE this book for kids!

All of the Barefoot books are high quality!!

My son and I love love love the Barefoot Books--especially the Bear series. I love how all the books use the same colors, shapes, designs, and animals...it provides consistency in my son's learning. The Bear in Sunshine has taught him all about the seasons and provided lots of giggles for the both of us before bed.

I love the bear books. Children, including mine, initally love looking at the pictures because of the bright and bold colors and contrasts, then enjoy the story. I am buying these as gifts, and will probobly buy more over time. "Bearfoot books" have the most wonderful illustrations.
