Reviews

The picture book is as cozy and familiar as a teddy bear's embrace, but smart touches elevate the story...There are lots of children's books about cute bears who talk like people, but few are as cleverly put together and as witty as Albert's little adventure.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The endpapers are particularly clever: the front, representing winter, includes cutaways depicting the animals' underground homes; the back surveys the same scene above ground in early spring. This is ideal for a springtime story hour, paired with April Pulley Sayre's Eat like a Bear (2013).
--Booklist

An ideal read-aloud for a storytime about bears or trees, or enjoyed one-on-one. A sweet addition for most collections.
