Booklist Reviews 2018 February #1

Bear has awoken from his first hibernation. With his stomach growling, he digs and scrapes for something to eat. Suddenly he recalls . . . honey! He runs to the tree where bees live, but it's too early in the year for honey. Now everything he sees reminds him of it, from the sticky sap and the golden meadow to the sweet smell of warm grass and the clear, flowing stream. He waits and waits and tries again, only to be stung by the bees. After more time passes, he finally feasts on honey, a summer highlight to remember as fall returns. The text emphasizes Bear's single-minded pursuit, but when he must wait, it turns to his delight in the world around him as the spring turns to summer and then fall. The short sentences and the many sensory words work well, helping readers to share his experiences. Created with bamboo pen, watercolor, and touches of white acrylic, the freewheeling, expressive illustrations bring Bear's world to life on the page. A well-crafted sequel to Leaves (2007). Preschool-Grade 1. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2018 Fall

In this follow-up to Leaves, Bear wakes from hibernation. He patiently keeps busy during spring and early summer, trying his best (but failing) to forget that it's not yet time for his favorite snack: honey. Repetition and steady pacing make for compelling page turns. Stein's uncluttered compositions keep the focus on the endearing protagonist, who is depicted in relaxed, carefree lines, with warm yellows and greens dominating.

This follow-up to the author-illustrator's Leaves (2007) may come over a decade later, but it's as if little time has passed: "It was his second year," the book opens---and there's ebullient Bear, waking from hibernation and declaring, "I'm back!" Bear's stomach grumbles, but it's too early in the year for honey. He patiently keeps busy under the "fat clouds" and "hot and still" days of spring and early summer, trying his best (but failing) to forget that it's not yet time for his favorite snack. Stein captures Bear's wide-eyed enthusiasm for discovering the natural world around him, as Bear eagerly puts all his senses to work--smelling the "warm grass," feeling the sticky sap, playing in the rain, and more. The use of repetition ("it was too soon for honey") and the steady pacing, which then accelerates once Bear finally hears buzzing bees, make for compelling page-turns. Stein's clean page design and uncluttered compositions keep the focus on the endearing protagonist, who is depicted in relaxed, carefree lines, with warm yellows and greens dominating the pages. Stein's writing is filled with vivid descriptors--gold meadows, bursting berries, "slowly flowing" and "aromatic" honey. Any toddler who has ever waited patiently (or not-so-patiently) for something will relate to the sight of Bear racing toward the bees ("Ouch!"). Once single-minded Bear does get the honey, readers can't help but rejoice with him as he delights in it. Simply delicious. julie Danielson Copyright 2018 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

Stein returns to the ursine protagonist and forest setting of his picture book Leaves. After waking up from hibernation, Bear goes on a quest for honey: "spicy, aromatic,/ sparkling with sunlight—Honey!" But it is not yet summer and too early for honey—which Bear learns after sticking his nose into a tree, where busy bees are working, and getting stung. While he waits for honey season to arrive, Bear finds other sources of joy, including frolicking in the rain and under a waterfall. But finally, at the sound of a buzz, Bear goes running to the source: "?‘Honey!' Just as good as he'd remembered." Working in deceptively simple visual vignettes enclosed in rough-edged panels, Stein's wriggly pen-and-ink lines bring a quality of vitality to the natural features of Bear's habitat. This gentle outing about waiting and appreciating concludes in autumn, as Bear sits atop a hill, bathed in moonlight, remembering summer and "how good it had been." Ages 2–5.
