PreS-A bear walks through town and sees different things or visits different places each day of the week, from the bakery on Monday to a movie on Wednesday to the playground on Sunday. There is not much of a story, but the book is attractive, with large objects to identify, and preschoolers will enjoy pointing out different sights. The illustrations are colorful, the bears that fill the busy scenes are appealing, and there is plenty for young readers to pore over.-Christine A.

"The illustrations are what may initially attract a young child to this book. The illustrations have bright colors and imaginative drawings. [S]tudents will be captivated with the bear on the cover and will notice little details of what he carries in his arms. The text is simple and predictive, using the days of the week as the focal point.... At the very end of the book is an illustration of the entire town and Bear's house. The children may want to spend time finding the places Bear had visited on the map. Many direction words can be used while exploring the town. Bear About Town is highly recommended for anyone, young and old." -- Lornette Quarterly Review "Lornette Quarterly Review"
