School Library Journal - 01/01/2020 Toddler-PreS–The adorable little cub introduced in Gee's Mad, Mad Bear is having a much better day! He has new leggings, slippers, and a tutu, and is off to dance school. Once he arrives at class, Bear feels a little less sure of himself. This new experience leaves him feeling shy, a little afraid, and different from his classmates. However, when the music starts, he begins to feel light, bubbly, and twirly, and becomes glad once more. Using the simplest language and full-bleed friendly illustrations in muted pastels, this winning story is perfect for sharing one-on-one or with a group. VERDICT Gee explores a multitude of feelings that come with any new and exciting experience. A bonus feature is that it subtly subverts gender norms.—Jessica Marie, Salem Public Library, OR - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
