In this fourth book featuring the two friends, Hare finds it difficult to share with his pal as they walk together. They discover a flower. “Share?”asks Bear. “Mine!” Hare replies. Bear’s request to share a balloon results in a tug of war, causing the balloon to pop. Hare buys ice cream and declares,“Mine!” Bear isn’t fazed by Hare’s selfishness, though, and sometimes even responds with a kindly hug. Although Bear isn’t with him when he discovers a beehive, Hare tucks into a tasty honeycomb with glee—until a swarm of bees chase him. “There there,” says Bear, who reappears with a first aid kit to soothe his friend’s bites. “Share?” says a contrite looking Hare, holding out a honey jar. The large illustrations, rendered in pencil, watercolor, and crayon,depict large, brown, shaggy haired Bear and Hare, ears so long they stretch toward the ends of the pages. Rarely do the two animals appear on the same page. The white ground makes the friends stand out and enables readers to focus on their many facial expressions: Bear’s smiling anticipatory overtures, his bowed dejection as he sees Hare wrap his arms and ears around a huge ice cream cone, and his comforting hugs; Hare’s sly glances and determination as he refuses to share, and his apologetic expression as he offers some honey. But does he really learn to share? The cover shows the friends tussling over a honey jar. The very last illustration portrays Hare holding that same jar away from Bear. Readers will have to decide. VERDICT This is a fine vehicle for discussing the value of sharing, and the simple declarative sentences make it perfect for beginning readers. Pair it with Susie Lee Jin’s Mine for a lively story time. (School Library Journal June 1, 2016)
Bear and Hare are back for another jaunty go round in Bear and Hare Share, and despite the spirit of generosity the title suggests, they never do share and it's all Hare's fault.
The two friends are on a walk, both smiling. All is well. Hare says, "Oooh, a flower!" and then eats it. "Share? asked Bear." "Mine! said Hare." This is the fun to read aloud refrain of the book all the wonderful nuance lies in Hare's guilty expression that says, "No way in the world I am giving you a bite of this delicious flower even though you are my friend." Amazingly, Bear hugs Hare anyway. They go for yet another walk. "Oooh, ice cream!" says Hare. "Share?" asked Bear, looking less happy than before. "Mine! said Hare." Hare has angry eyes here, and his arms are wrapped protectively around the giant ice cream cone, even his long ears are wrapped around it. Still, Bear doesn't care. Hare doesn't want to share a balloon, either, and their ensuing tug a war pops it. And when Hare finds some delicious honey, and a swarm of furious bees, it is Bear who comforts and nurses the bee stung Hare: "There there." (Bear still gets no honey...)
British author illustrator Emily Gravett's (Orange Pear Apple Bear; Again; Bear and Hare Go Fishing) madly adorable pencil, watercolor and crayon paintings of the bear and hare pair leap off the thick white pages to steal readers' hearts. Preschoolers know sharing is important (if difficult), but perhaps an even more important reminder is that being friends means occasionally forgiving ignoble behavior and moving on.
Discover: In Emily Gravett's new picture book, Hare doesn't share, but Bear doesn't care. (Shelf Awareness 7/15/16)
