Now these lively books about the adorable Bartholomew can be enjoyed by very young children. Carefully resized while making full use of the original artwork and story, the stories adapt perfectly to a board book format. Both deal humorously and sympathetically with toddler care issues, treating the child/carer relationship with a unique warmth that children and parents love. Eat Your Dinner! examines mealtime discipline and Be Gentle! tackles pet care.

Virginia Miller, who also publishes under the name Virginia Austin, lived and worked in New Zealand before moving to England a few years ago. Squeak-a-lot, her first children's book, was runner-up for the prestigious Mother Goose Award in 1991. She has since illustrated Sailor Bear, Small Bear Lost, Kate's Giants, Say Please! and six stories about the bears Bartholomew and George, On Your Potty!, Get Into Bed!, Eat Your Dinner!, In a Minute! I Love You Just the Way You Are, Ten Red Apples and a novelty book, Where Is Little Black Kitten?From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-- Ba, short for Bartholomew, is less than pleased with his dinner and emits his one word, ``Nah,'' with emphatic insistence when he is told to eat up. Yet when big George proceeds to polish off his own dinner and a luscious piece of honey cake, Ba has second thoughts. His licks his bowl clean and accepts a piece of cake with an innocent ``Nah.'' Everything about this book will appeal to toddlers: the familiar scenario and the focused, expressive illustrations. Miller uses a bold crayon line and soft watercolor washes to create simple, consistent designs that center readers' attention on the young bear and his mealtime struggle. Although this is not a new theme, it is dealt with adroitly and honestly. A warm and pleasant book. --Martha Topol, Northwestern Michigan College, Traverse City, MI
