"I Love You Mommy," is a heartwarming story by Jillian Harker of a little bear and her mother. The author does a great job in this story of showing how sometimes children need to learn things for themselves by making mistakes and trial and error. One example of this is in the beginning of the story when little bear wants to go fishing and her Mom says "Wait a minute, there's something you might want to know." But like a typical child, little bear runs off without listening and ends up falling into the water. This is an accurate depiction of kids today who think they know it all. Once the mother bear shows her daughter how to go fishing then little bear learns the right way. I feel that this is a great example of modeling a behavior as an effective way of learning. All in all, this is cute story where the central message is children do not always know what's best and sometimes they should listen to their parents and role models. ( )

This is a very sweet picture book about a little bear growing up and his experiences at trying new things. He wants to show his mom that he can do the things that she can do, but he doesn't wait for his mom to show him how or give him any advice. He tries things such as: fishing, swimming, and climbing. Each time, he quickly realizes that he can't do those things without the help of his mother. The main focus or theme is being obedient to your mom and the consequences of your actions if you don't.

This would be a great book to read aloud to kindergarten or first graders. Good tool for teaching prediction: what's going to happen to little bear if he doesn't listen?
The book has bold, colorful, and engaging pictures that fill the page. The text is east to read and the dialogue shows the positive connection between a mother and child.

Recommended grade: K-2 ( )
