Publisher's Summary

It's Bear's first day of school, and he's a bit reluctant to go. Mama says all bears love school; Bear isn't so sure. But school turns out to be full of fun--painting pictures, listening to stories, and making new friends. Maybe this bear will like school after all.

This story makes a lovely addition to the 'first-day-of-school' canon. I like the sweet way that bear clings to his comfortable/familiar, and his loyalty to the life he has known thus far. Mr. Brown has a gentle manner of introducing bear to the exciting new world of school without forcing bear to engage past his comfort zone. Given the time and space to be ready for new experiences, bear gradually finds his way, and a new friend as well.
