Bears and a Birthday

Bears in the Bath

The text is light and fun with an easy-to-read rhythm and rhyme. ... The illustrations, done in acrylic, are soft and fuzzy. This story a good choice for birthday collections, but the bears are endearing enough to be enjoyed any day of the year.

--School Library Journal

The rhyming text is simple and flows well.... This is a sweet story of friendship and birthdays, which would be a good pick for storytime or sharing one-on-one.

--Booklist Online

Gentle and full of charm, this is a nice selection for toddlers and very young readers, who will appreciate the clear story, repetition and obvious affection shared among the lovable characters.

— Kirkus Reviews
