Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? Oct 30, 2007
Children love the "sing Songy" Rhymes. Illustrations are adorable. A must have for every childs collection.
Play on words not appreciated! Jun 19, 2007
Darling book, love the sing-songy quality about the verses, BUT, there's a typo, and after emailing the publisher, I learned that it's an intentional "play on words". It's "Jesse Bear", not "Jesse Bare" (as appears on the bathtub page). Okay, it's a little funny that it's on that page where presumably Jesse Bear is a bare bear, but is it too much to ask that our children's books be gramatically correct? I'm not sure why the editors think they can (or should!) try to pull this off! This "play on words" adds nothing to the story, but it sure does add confusion for early readers, not to mention frustration for parents who, like me, would like to instill proper grammar/word usage! I prefer to buy books that have actually been edited! There are plenty of other great books! (I don't object to the fun with words, but is it too much to ask that it be gramatically correct? If it's a play on words you're after, check out the Amelia Bedelia books. The author does a lovely job of playing with words/meanings but in a grammatically correct fashion!)

This book was smaller than the original I had several years ago. Kind of pricey, too. Great book -- that's why I wanted another copy.
Excellent book! May 31, 2007
This is the perfect toddler book. I got it from the library for a homeschool lesson, and my daughter loved it so much I'm going to buy our own copy. The images are colorful and soft, with lots to look at. The story (or poetry) is very simple and short. I like how, even though the story centers around baby Jesse and his mom, the dad is involved also. The story is very warm, with obvious affection shown for Jesse by his parents.
A family favorite Apr 21, 2007
Our family has loved this book through three kids - both boys & girls. Now our family refers to each other as Daddy Bear, Momma Bear, brother bear, sister bear. It is a fun, sweet book for little ones. Toddlers will relate.
