ALA Booklist
Here are four gentle stories about Baby Bear, who's a bit older than his name suggests. After all, this sturdy fellow is independent enough to have his own mild adventures in the forest. In the first chapter, Baby Bear goes fishing, catches a red boot, and, after some searching, locates its owner. In the second, he finds a surprise for his mother. The third chapter involves returning a baby bird to its nest, while in the final one, he befriends a little girl. Similar in tone to Minarik and Sendak's classic Little Bear series for young readers, these stories are simply written, with a good amount of dialogue and enough repetition to reinforce the vocabulary. The artwork n-and-ink drawings brightened with watercolor washes eate an idyllic woodland setting. In both the text and the illustrations, there's an earnestness about these characters that is childlike and endearing. With a wider format than most books for beginning readers, this also makes an appealing picture book for reading aloud to the younger set.
Publishers Weekly
Baby Bear, first seen in 2017-s I Promise, makes a series of discoveries in this cheery collection of four stories. McPhail-s characteristically unadorned and finely lined ink-and-watercolor illustrations showcase Baby Bear-s verdant woodland home and earnest, easygoing personality. In -Baby Bear Finds a Boot,- he hooks a rubber boot while fishing and becomes determined to -give it back- to its rightful owner. In subsequent tales, Baby Bear-s -finds- offer other problem-solving opportunities. How can Baby Bear share a rare flower without picking it? Can he keep a baby bird safe after it falls out of his nest? Who will he play with when all of his friends are busy? Solutions to these challenges are all well within Baby Bear-s reach, and McPhail subtly reminds readers that they, too, are capable of accomplishing quite a bit. These simple, well-structured stories are suffused with warmth and a spirit of generosity, and the book is ideally suited to burgeoning readers who are eager to put their developing skills to the test. Ages 4-8. Agent: Faith Hamlin, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Feb.)
