Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 07/23/2023 Brown Bear proudly proclaims, “I AM THE ONLY BEAR IN THIS BOOK!” That announcement stands unchallenged for a second or two, until Polar Bear strides through the forest and points out the physical features he and Brown Bear share. Brown Bear allows him to stay, as long as Polar Bear doesn’t stray from his side of the page. But as soon as he yells, “We are the only two bears in this book,” American Black Bear climbs down from a tree. One by one, Sloth Bear, Spectacled Bear, Sun Bear, Giant Panda, and Asiatic Black Bear enter, introduce themselves, and join the fun. When an octopus arrives, disguised as a bear, the others point out what they share that he lacks. Facts about the world's eight bear species are woven into the text. Reflecting the amusing tone of the characters’ banter while clearly showing the bears’ varied physical features, the digital art boosts the book’s appeal. This companion volume to Holub and Keller’s I Am the Shark (2021) offers a lively look at the world’s bears. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
