From School Library Journal:
PreS-K-In these diminutive picture books, Benjamin engages in routine activities. In Friend, the bored little bear finally plays with his toy teddy. In Snow, he builds a snowman, skis, and goes sledding with his father. Busy Day shows Benjamin having breakfast, going to school, playing, eating dinner, bathing, and going to bed. In the last title, he cares for his sick mother by taking her tea and a roll with honey, shopping, and cleaning the house. The illustrations, photographs of dioramas, are colorful but static. The texts are brief, dull, and merely describe what the bear is doing. There is no sense of beginning, middle, and end to these "stories." Skip them.-Olga R.
