Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—This third book about a sweet little bear who is learning small, important lessons in heartwarming ways opens with the happy discovery of a three-leaf clover. Bear's worries begin when Mouse says, "If you find one with four leaves, it means that you're lucky." As Bear searches for one, the other animals tell him that he'll never be successful, making him feel "very unlucky." True to form, Foley brings the story to a surprising and uplifting conclusion that reinforces the joys of friendship. This gifted graphic artist has an inspired understanding of a young child's world. He isn't timid about employing almost identical pictures on each page: a mound of green grass, a sprinkling of clover, the small bear, and—in most cases–one other animal. The background is always a clean, bright white. Each opposing page, on which the text resides, has a different pastel shade. The most essential variations are the succession of featured critters and Bear's position and expression in response to each of them. The simplicity of the text, theme, and illustrations makes this an excellent choice for the very young.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY

From Booklist

When Bear’s friend Mouse informs him that a clover with four leaves “means that you’re lucky,” he begins to search for one. One by one, other animals stop by with comments on his quest. As time goes by, Bear feels increasingly unlucky until Mouse stops by again and makes a discovery that lifts Bear’s spirits. Like Thank You Bear (2007) and Don’t Worry Bear (2008), this unpretentious picture book uses a few expressive lines, a few flat colors, and minimal shading to tell a story with a twist at the end. A simple picture book for young children. Preschool. --Carolyn Phelan

I love this book as much as the other two in the bear series by Greg Foley. It puts a smile on my face whenever I read it to my son and he loves it too. It is refreshingly simple and touches my heart.

Don't wait for the minimum recommended age (4) to get the books in this series for your child. I started reading Thank you Bear when my kids were around a year old. My children's love of it evolved throught their different developmental phases...first they listened, then talked about the animals and colors, then asked questions about the story. With the series of 3 now available, the kids are asking for the different ones by title, excited to hear again and again about what Bear is doing in each.

I ordered as many of the Bear series by Greg Foley as possible. These books are great, super cute, wonderful illustrations and easy to read for children. Great stories all together.

Format: Hardcover
Good Luck Bear is a bright and funny little story about a bear looking for a four leaf clover. The other animals that Bear encounters are quite pessimistic, but also ridiculous. My favorite spread is of Bear lying down on the hill and feeling "very unlucky." Greg Foley did an excellent job on the pictures. They are full of life and character. This book is very sweet and definitely worth checking out!
