Review quote

Between the unerringly positive approach to a common early-childhood dilemma and the can't-miss rhyme, this volume will likely find its place on many a daycare shelf.
—Kirkus Reviews

Rhyming text is simple enough for a preschool audience, and the lesson the bears model about sharing, though obvious, will be welcomed by many teachers and parents.
—Publishers Weekly

Parenteau’s brief rhythmic text is bouncy and light, and ideal for reading aloud. Themes of sharing and compassion are introduced in developmentally appropriate, subtle ways, and the bears’ discovery of their own resolution is a refreshing conclusion to the story. Walker’s acrylic illustrations match the airy lyricism and mood of the text.
—School Library Journal

Along with the visual treat of watching softly colored bears and chairs on expanses of white pages, this book cleverly melds words and art.
