From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-In this worthy successor to Dyer's Little Brown Bear Won't Take a Nap! (Little, Brown, 2002), the protagonist stubbornly announces at breakfast, "I won't go to school." Mama and Papa Bear sensibly respond that just as they have to go to work, his job is to go to school, and they drop him off at the schoolhouse door. The cub has other ideas, however, and slips away to sample some other "real" jobs, from waiting tables at a diner (he can't write down the orders) to cutting hair at a barbershop (a grouchy lion is none-too-pleased with the results of his trim). He finally runs back to school, where he gazes longingly through the window at his busy classmates. "That looks like fun," he thinks, as he tiptoes inside, and finds that his teacher has a reassuring, just-right job for him. Dyer's generously sized, softly colored watercolor illustrations are tantalizingly full of detail, like syrup dripping over stacks of delectable blueberry pancakes. The anthropomorphized characters are endearingly realistic, as in a large portrait of an angry pig in chef's garb. An entertaining antidote for starting-school blues.

From Booklist

PreS. Last time out, Little Brown Bear didn't want to take a nap; now he's not taken with the idea of school. When his parents drop him off on their way to work, he promptly turns around and heads to the diner next door, telling the cook that he needs a job. He can take orders, but he can't actually write. A job building with the beavers literally falls apart. He can't knit, and he can't cut hair. After all the disappointments, Little Bear heads to school, where the teacher gives him a job he can handle--passing out papers. Art and text are in total harmony here: the satisfying, well-plotted story of a little bear whose goals are larger than his capabilities gets a sweet, softened treatment with watercolor pictures that use a cast of appealing animals. The soft glow wrapping a number of the pictures and some old-fashioned costumes give the art a wistful air. The ending, when Little Bear's frustrations are banished, is upbeat and just right.

Read this for the first three months when my daughter began school. Helped her with transitioning to the school schedule and kept the conversation going about her likes and dislikes. Great memories with this one!
