Praise

* “The curious young bear from Leaves returns for ‘his second year,’ fresh from hibernation and eager for the taste of honey. . . . In the meantime, the other delights of spring and summer beckon, and the bear relishes warm grass, bursting berries, and rushing rain as he waits for the telltale buzz that heralds his favorite treat. Highlighting the natural greens and golds of summer, Stein’s pen-and-watercolor illustrations are suffused with loose, childlike exuberance, while their relatively small scale invites a sense of intimacy, drawing readers into the bear’s anticipation and eventual satisfaction. Throughout, the art balances the straightforward sensory details of the text, with some actions described and others—such as a well-deserved bee sting on the nose—purely visual. A seasonal read with storytime potential and staying power, Honey is not to be missed.”School Library Journal, starred review

“The text emphasizes Bear’s single-minded pursuit, but when he must wait, it turns to his delight in the world around him as the spring turns to summer and then fall. The short sentences and the many sensory words work well, helping readers to share his experiences. . . . The freewheeling, expressive illustrations bring Bear’s world to life on the page. A well-crafted sequel to Leaves.”Booklist
