Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In this appealing follow-up to Bear Snores On (S & S, 2002), it is spring, Bear is awake, and he is hungry. Several of his animal friends take him to places where he can get food, "But the bear wants more!" Finally, he heads home, where others have organized a party for him, but he has eaten so much that he gets stuck in his own doorway. After being pried out, he eats more and falls asleep, but now "his friends want more!" The rollicking, rhyming text flows smoothly, and the repeated refrain will have youngsters chiming right in. The acrylic illustrations are brightly colored, and the creatures, although they are sweetly appealing and use tools, look distinctly like wild animals; the details are wonderful. The layout alternates between full-bleed spreads and single-page pictures, some of which are also full bleed, while others are in a circle. This format works well to move the story along, and encourages page turns. This simple, gentle story, with its short text, large graphics, and reference to hibernation, will work well in storytimes for young preschoolers, and will fill teachers' demands for seasonal tales.

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. What happens after a bear breaks the fast of hibernation? In this rhyming follow-up to Bear Snores On (2002), Bear emerges as a lean, mean, eating machine. His animal friends help him find food, and he munches his way through the forest. As his grub crawl proceeds, both the words of the refrain ("But the bear wants more!") and Bear himself increase in size. Other friends busily plan a party for Bear back at his lair. Later all the friends must work together to pry the overfed, very stuck Bear from the entrance to his den. The story is fun and funny, but it takes a backseat to the illustrations. Chapman's acrylic paintings have a freshly washed look that conveys the newness of spring, and they are layered with delightful comic touches--Bear's increasing girth, his friends' bemused expressions, and the flower crown he wears at his picnic, after which he falls asleep. Now Bear is "full, full, full . . . but . . . his friends want more." An appealing romp about springtime and friendship. Connie Fletcher

Format: Hardcover
"When springtime comes,/in his warm winter den/a bear wakes up/very hungry and thin!" He lumbers outside and begins to look for food, eating the new shoots of grass that have popped up outside his front door. But that barely begins to satisfy his hunger, and the bear wants more. Fortunately his woodland friends, Mouse, Hare, and Badger pass by, glad to see him after the long winter, and help him find food... strawberries, clover, and fish in the stream. But the bear's still hungry and wants more to eat. "Meanwhile.../back at the big bear's den/wait Gopher and Mole/with Raven and Wren.// They bake honey cakes./They decorate the lair./It's a springtime party/for their good friend Bear!" Bear smells the party foods wafting in the air and hurries home to his big surprise party. But he's eaten so much today, that he's too big to fit into his den and gets stuck in his own front door. Now with a party inside just waiting to begin, what are Bear and his friends going to do..... Author, Karma Wilson and illustrator, Jane Chapman are back with a joyous springtime sequel to last year's marvelous Bear Snores On. Ms Wilson's rhythmic, rhyming text is engaging, and little ones will revel in reading the oft-repeated refrain, "But the bear wants more!", along with you. Ms Chapman's bold, bright and expressive artwork is filled with vivid color, eye-catching detail, and endearing characters. Together word and art usher in the spring with humor and fun. Bear Wants More is a winner, and a charming, read-aloud, preschool crowd-pleaser that shouldn't be missed.

My neighbor got this book for us as a gift and I could never have imagined how it would change our lives. My son loves this book. His favorite part is when it says "but the bear wants more" I pause before I say more, and he screams "MORE" using the sign language you see on the front. It is a great find. We are all very happy to have the "bear mo" book (as my son calls it).

I could read this book a hundred times a day and not tire of it. It is such a nice read and my son loves it. I bought it for my nephews and it was a favorite at their house too.

Another 5 star reception at our house! The kids wanted to stop unwrapping presents and read this as soon as they saw it! We're working on the memorization for this one too! (see my review of B Snores on) The kids were excited to see Bear waking up in the spring, which sparked lots of questions about why bears sleep all winter. A great jumping off point to introduce the kids to the habits of animals!

Can't wait for the new Bear book in Summer '06!

A super-cute kids story by Karma Wilson, Bear Wants More reads like a follow-up to Bear Snores On. It's got a good rhyme scheme and the illustrations are wonderful. Astute parents will notice that all of the animals on the cover are making the ASL sign for "more".

What a great series of books for 2.5 year olds and up. The illustrations are wonderful, the story line is sweet and charming, and my Son loves to hear them over and over. This is our 3rd and we plan on purchasing the remainder.

This book is truly one of my all-time favorites to read, and both of my children LOVE all the "bear books". The illustrations are beautiful, and it's one of the very few books that I've not tired of after reading hundreds of times. I can't wait for Karma Wilson's next book!
