PreS Preschooler Bear describes his house and some of the things he, his father and his mother do in each of the rooms. A full-color double-page spread of each room ("This is our living room. It is full of nice things.") is followed by two pages showing details of the busy family's activities. While not as crowded as Richard Scarry's books, this is much the same, offering the reassurance of a happy family sharing mundane tasks and small pleasures. Suburban children who live in houses like this one, with a washer/dryer, a ping-pong table, a lawn mower, a fireplace and even a white picket fence will identify with the solidly middle-class family. The many children lacking such "nice things" may find it beyond their ken. Children who have explored Harlow Rockwell's My Kitchen (Greenwillow, 1980) will enjoy celebrating the familiar throughout the house, although Anne Rockwell's illustrations lack the crispy-clean beauty of Harlow's.
