It's true that Mama Bear is the primary caretaker, while Papa Bear is the bread-winner who puts his feet up when he gets home - unlike his wife who is actively involved in the illustrations for the entire book. So what? If you as a parent are worried about gender-inequality, what a perfect time to discuss gender roles! "Do you see how excited Jesse Bear is when Papa comes home from work? You know, in some families the Mama works too...." Since when does a book have to be politically correct in order to be worth reading or owning? I feel it is more important to expose children to the variety of life options in childrens' books, and use them as a stepping stone towards a discussion, than to avoid books based on the political correctness of the day.
If you're mature enough to handle 'old fashioned' gender roles, this book is sure to bring delight to your child and yourself. I am anxious to turn in the library book and replace it with a permanent copy for ourselves. I see Jesse Bear being a part of our lives for a looooooooooong time...
