PreSchool-K. An endearing Little Bear goes off to kindergarten for the first time. All is well until it's time for his mother to leave. Both his teacher and mother are stumped until the situation is resolved by another kindergartner who becomes Little Bear's friend and saves the day. The text is just right?succinct and with the oft-repeated phrase, "I remember" to give it unity. Little Bear and his parent start the day recalling a previous preparatory visit to school, and end it when his mother "remembers" to come pick him up and Little Bear "remembers" to tell his new friend he'll see him tomorrow. The soft pastel watercolor-and-ink illustrations have a warm childlike appeal, similar to Nancy Carlstrom's "Jesse Bear" books (S & S), although these fuzzy animals have a distinctive look all their own. Nicely put together and well balanced in format, this picture book should be a welcome addition.?Judith Constantinides, East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
