Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The latest installment in Gliori's ongoing adventures of Mr. Bear will be familiar to anyone who's spent a wakeful night with a newborn. Mr. Bear and his wife try everything to soothe their newest little one to sleepAfeeding, patting, singingAbut to no avail. The wailing continues as neighbors drop by offering a variety of cradles. "How can someone so small make so much noise?" wonders Mr. Bear, who by this time is "feeling pretty close to crying himself." Finally, Small Bear, awakened by the din, comes up with the winning suggestion: that they cuddle his new sister in "a bedful of bears." Gliori's warmly lit watercolors set a snug stage for this appealing family tale, and her eye for humorous detail is in evidence, from the honeybee mobile hanging over the new baby's crib to the parenting books that litter the floor at Mrs. Bear's bedside and the cotton diapers festooning the kitchen laundry lines. Preschoolers will find Gliori's domestic landscape as cozy as flannel sheets on a cold night. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-Mr. and Mrs. Bear's new baby will not stop crying no matter what her distraught parents try. Awakened by the noise, the other forest creatures visit the Bears with remedies that soothed their own children but nothing works. The infant keeps crying until her older sister gets out of bed and suggests that Baby Bear needs some cuddling. All four bears climb into bed together, and soon the baby is fast asleep. Told with just the right amount of repetition, this charming story will appeal to youngsters who have a new sibling. Complementing the text are softly colored cartoons of animals surrounded by the homey clutter that comes with a newborn: toys and baby-care books are strewn on the floor, diapers hang from a kitchen clothesline, and congratulatory cards and flowers line the shelves. Children may have trouble distinguishing Mr. Bear from the identical Mrs. Bear, and the text is a little long. Still, this appealing picture book will reassure older children of their importance in the family. It would work well for preschool storytime or as a family read-aloud.

Mr Bear's New Baby (Mr.Bear)
Mr. Bear's new baby can't sleep, and won't stop crying. While Mr. and Mrs. Bear try their best to get the baby to stop crying and go to sleep, one by one their sleepless forest neighbors arrive to offer help and advice. But it's their own Small Bear who'll have the answer they need.

This book honors the role of mothers, siblings, and friends in taking care of a new baby, while at the same time emphasizing a father's role in parenting and celebrating the very special bond between a father and his children. That's no mean feat for a children's story, and this book pulls it off with warmth and style.

This is such a special book that we've given a few as gifts. Gift#1 was given to a friend who's name is Bear and my kids now call him Mr.Bear. He has two daughters and this book celebrates the bond between siblings, sisters, harried parents of little ones and friends who have been there too! I also "Perform" the voices of all the characters when I read it, so it has become a howlingly-funny favorite of my family's.

Format: Paperback
I came across the Mr. Bear series of books at our local library and promptly checked them out. All of the books in the series are lavishly illustrated in color and have engaging story lines. Here, Mr. Bear finds himself and his wife at wits' end when the newest addition to the family refuses to settle down and go to sleep. The other animals come to their aid - Mr. Bun the rabbit, Mrs. Hoot-Toowit the owl, Mrs. Grizzle-Bear, etc. but nothing seems to help until Small Bear comes up with the perfect idea.

My kindergartner is reading independently, and though I've already started her on chapter books, she still loves books which contain lots of illustrations. The Mr. Bear series of books fit the bill perfectly as they have a fair balance of text and pictures. Many of the titles may be out of print but I believe they are still in circulation in the local libraries or through third-party vendors here.

Format: Hardcover
Mr. Bear's New Baby is a story that anyone who has experienced the joys of sleep-deprivation due to a newborn baby in the house can appreciate. Poor Mr. Bear can't figure out how to stop his new baby from crying all night long. He has tried everything. All of the books that he has read on how to solve his child's sleep problems are strewn across the floor. He is baffled. His neighbors try to help, but to no avail. Finally, the baby's sibling comes up with a solution that works.

Mr. Bear's New Baby, while a bit long for a read-aloud book (my four year old daughter began to fidget half-way through the reading) is still a charming story with delightful illustrations. (Note: Those opposed to co-sleeping with a baby may not approve of the ending.)
