        November 15, 2016
        In his third outing (Room for Bear, 2015; Bear Is Not Tired, 2016), Bear learns to share jam and eat his vegetables.On a grocery outing with his duck family, Bear first tastes jam (a detail cleverly shown in an illustration before the title page). Bear loves jam so much he forgets to share, eats it at inappropriate times, and, worst of all, refuses to eat anything but jam. Mama Duck decrees no more jam until the vegetables are eaten. Bear goes to bed hungry and his "tummy growled so loudly he couldn't sleep," but he still refuses to eat anything but jam. Boy Duck and Girl Duck to the rescue! They invent games that coax Bear into inadvertently eating his vegetables, and contentment reigns again. Gavin's tranquil watercolor illustrations, rendered in pastel washes, give the story an overall impression of serenity even when Bear is behaving badly. The illustrations are presented in a variety of formats--spot illustrations, double-page spreads, and single-page spreads that blend seamlessly and rarely fail to take advantage of the visual humor inherent in a family of small white ducks with one very large bear. The story's lessons--share, and eat your vegetables--are delivered painlessly and good-humoredly, and Gavin's bear and ducks are cute as buttons. (Although the ducks occasionally verge on too cute when they imitate Bear's antics.) The front and back endpapers add nice details to the narrative. Comfortable. (Picture book. 2-5)

        PreS-Gr 1-Bear and his duck family return in this third installment, which features a sweet lesson about the virtues of foods that don't come in jam jars. Having never tried such perfect preserves, Bear is astonished at how delicious they are and vows never to eat anything else. He refuses to share, starts to sneak into the pantry at night, and generally begins to worry wise Mama Duck. She insists that her big bear have no more jam until he eats his vegetables. Bear's subsequent histrionics include lying prostrate, furry paw thrown across his face, convinced "he would become seriously ill." After a night of hunger pangs, Bear accepts the help of his clever siblings and makes a game of eating his peas, corn, and potatoes. Bear learns to enjoy his jam after a balanced meal and to share with his feathered family. Gavin's warm watercolor illustrations perfectly play up Bear's comical proportions in comparison with his duck family.
