In lilting verse and exuberant paintings, the first of Nancy White Carlstrom’s and Bruce Degen’s celebrated Jesse Bear books creates a special day not only for Jesse Bear, but for young children everywhere.

What does a little bear wear while he romps through a bright and sunny day? In the morning, his pants that dance, a rose between his toes, and the sun on his legs that run. At lunchtime, an apple to bite and a moustache of white, and juice from a pear and rice in his hair. And at night, his pjs with feet and face on the seat, and sleep in his eyes and stars in the skies, as he dreams of the fun he’ll have tomorrow.

This is the most wonderful childrens book ever. All three of my children have loved it and now I read it to my granddaughter. Thank you so much for the memories.

This was one of my daughters favorite books when she was little and now I'm reading it to my two-yearold twin grand-daughters, who also love it!

My two boys loved this book as small children. I read it to them so many times we had to replace it. I bought it as a baby shower gift and my 21 year old son requested I get one to read to the children he will have one day.

I remember my mom reading this book to me when I was little. 19 years later I still have the teddy bear that I named Jesse Bear because I loved this book so much. When I have children, this is the first book that I'm buying.

I simply read the title to my two youngest kids, and they were hooked already! They have asked for it over and over in the two weeks since we bought it. I've already decided it will be one of the books I will give as a baby gift.

I originally looked at this book because my son is named Jesse. Upon reading the book, I found it to be sweet and enjoyable for any child. Jesse is only 6 months old, but loves to have this book read to him because he recognizes his name in the story. As an elementary school teacher, I can honestly say that this is quality children's literature that kids of all ages (and names) will enjoy.
