Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* PreS-K. The old favorite gets wrapped in a Christmas bow, with excellent results. It's Christmas Eve, and all through the house, the Bear family is getting ready. Mama Bear has just made gingerbread, but it's too hot to eat, so the family takes a walk outside in the snowy forest. When they return, why, someone has been eating the gingerbread--and gobbled it all up! The visitor sat in the chairs, too, and broke one. And sure enough, someone tried out all the beds--and left a red coat draped on the baby bear's bed. Someone also left presents under the tree. The bears run out to see a coatless Santa waving from his sleigh. The artwork is utterly childlike, with sturdy, stocky bear figures unambiguously investigating the whereabouts of their visitor. But there are also some magical scenes, especially when the family walks in the woods. Snow-crusted fir trees ring their cabin, and stars twinkle against a midnight sky (sharp-eyed children can see the tiniest hint of a sleigh). The enchantment of the outdoor spreads, where sounds are as important as sights, juxtaposes neatly against the mysteries the bears find when they return home. Ilene Cooper

I received this book and was greeted by the cheerful cover. The story is sweet and full of surprises while the illustrations are interesting yet also have a nostalgic feel. I especially like the "What do I see?" game the family plays while walking through the woods. Overall, I see this book as a great story to share with a child to make the holidays even more special! Thank you, Ms. Duval!

My 2-year-old son loved this book. We read it over and over again. It's great for the younger kids who already know the traditional story of the three bears. Add a magical visit from Santa to the mix and you've got a story that will keep them fascinated.

Children will love this tale of bears and the magic of the Christmas season. With suspense and mystery, Baby Bear discovers the identity of a visitor. The images and delightful text make it a book a child will want to hear over and over.

I had a lot of fun reading this book to my daughter's 3 to 4 year old preschool class for their Christmas party. The pictures are great. There wasn't too much text that it lost their attention. And it was easy to add interactive questions as I read along. And they all enjoyed guessing who it was that went to the Bears' house while they were out. The kids all seemed to really enjoy it. Makes a fun book to read at home to your child or to a group of children.
