  •     My son really enjoys the Jesse Bear books and this is another great one about Jesse Bear and Christmas time. I really like the fact that this story is not just about the night before or the day of, but the entire season. This book is a great choice for kids ages 3-5, or older kids who might not have the attention span to sit for longer stories.

  •     Where is Christmas Jesse Bear? Join Jesse and his bear family as they explore the sights, sounds, smells, activities and feelings that make this time of the year so wonderful. Is it the beautiful prickly tree or the ornaments and lights? Is it the aroma of cookies baking and spicey apple cider? Is it the music we hear, the wrapping of presents, the glow of candles or the falling snow? Jesse Bear finds out it's all these things and much, much more...most importantly, that warm feeling in your heart that comes from celebrating with family and friends. Nancy White Carlstrom's newest Jesse Bear book really captures the spirit of the season with this warm, gentle, rhyming story, as we watch Jesse and his family get ready to celebrate Christmas together. Her text is beautifully complimented by Bruce Degen's expressive, colorful, detailed illustrations and together they bring pre-schoolers the holiday message of peace on earth and joy to the world.

  •     This is one of the best Christmas books we checked out from the library this year. You follow Jesse bear at home and around town while he uses his five senses to discover Christmas. My two-year old loves it and we'll be getting our own copy for reading during the holidays.
