From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—"It all started with the bear," begins this story of what happened to a sandwich. Bear wakes up to the delectable aroma of freshly picked berries. He sniffs out a red truck, the back of which is filled with boxes of perfectly harvested berries. After having a berry party, Bear falls asleep. The truck drives him to a new forest—the city. When Bear begins to explore, he sees things in the city framed by his own experiences: a telephone pole becomes a tree, and bricks on the side of a building make great bark for scratching. In a park, he finds a lunchbox with a delicious sandwich, which he eats ravenously. When he climbs a tree, he can see his forest home in the distance and desperately wants to return. Somehow, he finds a boat, which carries him to the familiar sights and sounds of home. "So that's what happened to [the] sandwich." This is a fun story that children will enjoy, though they'll need to suspend logic a bit. The illustrations in this book are terrific: color-drenched and bold slashes that cover the pages. The funny Bear is sympathetic and is only doing what bears do—eating and sleeping. And making us laugh. This book is a fine addition to any collection.—Mary Hazelton, formerly at Warren & Waldoboro Elementary Schools, ME

I sent this book as a birthday gift to a 3-year old and he is delighted with it. It has become his favorite book and his mother says that almost every night he climbs on her lap with this book and insists that they both read it. He’s much taken with the beautiful illustrations.
The hardcover edition is a large 9”x11” and has a dust jacket which it does not need since the picture on the dust jacket is the same as on the glossy board cover. It’s probably best to take the off the dust jacket and put it away somewhere since it won’t last long in a toddler’s hands.
