PreSchool-Grade 1—When big, hairy Boris the grizzly bear joins Miss Cluck's classroom, the other animals are afraid of him despite his friendly overtures. They reject him over and over, only embracing him when he unwittingly scares away the bullies in the rat pack. Cozy text and sweet illustrations are not enough to save this flawed story. Boris is judged by his appearance as a "hairy, scary grizzly bear" from beginning to end; at first he is seen as a threat, and later as a protector. His classmates never learn that he is simply a youngster like themselves, looking for friendship. Even the teacher blames the victim, saying, "Boris, please try to be less scary, dear." Alone in the library corner, he sobs, "I'm just a great big grizzly bear." When his appearance frightens away the rats and his classmates finally claim him as their own, he declares, "If you're going to be a bear, then it's probably best to be a hairy, scary grizzly bear." Boris has been brainwashed. Whether the story is meant as a lesson on how to treat the new kid, or on judging by appearances, the message it ultimately sends is an unfortunate one.—Heidi Estrin, Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FL

Mrs. Cluck announces to her students, a group of cuddly little animals, that a bear will be joining their class. Happily anticipating a new teddy-bear-like friend, they’re stunned when Boris, an enormous young grizzly with sharp teeth and claws, lumbers though the door. Though softhearted Boris tries to fit in, his attempts tend to frighten his compatriots. But after school, when the Rat Pack bullies his new classmates, Boris heads into their midst and saves the day. The story makes good use of repeated words and repeatable phrases for emphasis and for fun. The tale unfolds dramatically through the action-oriented story and the colorful, endearing artwork. Children familiar with Paddington Bear will enjoy spotting him in two illustrations. For preschool and primary-grade teachers looking for stories that encourage empathy for “the new kid,” here’s an appealing picture book to share with their classes. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan
