PreS-K-Wilson does it again in this new installment about Bear and his forest friends. This time Bear is bored and wants to throw a party. When he discovers that he has nothing in his cupboards with which to whip up a feast, he becomes despondent. But his trusty pals come to the rescue, all offering up something for the festivities. Bear is thankful for their generosity but still feels sad that he has nothing to make. Once again, his friends help him understand how much he is loved by telling him that his stories are the most valuable contribution to the party. The illustrations are as detailed as ever, and children will want to reach out and hug Bear because he is so fluffy and welcoming. The rhymes are pleasing to the ear and move the story along. This is a great choice to share in storytime when discussing gratitude, sharing, or thanks.-Cass Mabbott, Seattle Public Library, WAα(c) Copyright 2011.

"Told in rhymed verse, the text reads aloud smoothly. As the animals arrive with their edible gifts, a repeated line, 'and the bear says thanks' gives children a chance to participate in the story. The book’s large format allows plenty of space for the illustrations, and Chapman’s lively acrylic paintings make the most of it. Even preschoolers new to the series will be charmed by this big, gentle bear and his generous woodland friends."--Booklist

"Who would not love this cuddly, soft, furry creature? A tender tale of friendship, timed for Thanksgiving." (Kirkus)
"Chapman’s glowing acrylics create a joyful atmosphere in a story that obliquely references Thanksgiving, but functions as a reminder of the importance of gratitude any time of year." (Publishers Weekly)

The repeat line "Thanks" in Bear Says Thanks makes it fun to read out loud and children really get into the spirit of anticipating the opportunity to shout out Thanks. And the notion that all of bears friends had brought food and bears cupboards were bare and bear still had something to share was a wonderful notion. Bears friends told him he had stories to share. What a reafirming story about the value of all in the community.
