Jesse Bear's upset that a cousin he dislikes is coming for a visit this summer. But spending a week together helps him see her good points.

It might have been nice to have an indicator when the rhyming narration switches character point of view for young readers and those of us who like to do silly voices on the fly as we read aloud, but it's still a fun little tale. ( )
