"[With] bold and brightly colored paintings, 'The Three Bears' [have] seldom looked better. Recognizing that the tale's youngest fans focus on its core, Barton distills it to a bare outline and the rhythmic refrains [they] love to hear. This is a celebration of their literary needs and a huge success in meeting them. Its success is virtually guaranteed as a story-time crowd-pleaser." - SLJ.
