Make a Wish Bear

Greg Foley. Viking, $12.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-670-01239-8

In the fourth book in Foley’s series starring an ingenuous bear child, Bear wishes on a golden star one winter evening. As he sits upon the snow, waiting for the wish to come true, he’s joined by Mouse, Owl, Fox, Elephant, Turtle, and Bunny, all of whom have different ideas about how to make a wish come true (closing one’s eyes, standing on one foot, holding one’s breath, etc.). Foley’s colorful, loosely outlined animal characters exude quiet humor and personality, and stand out against the spare winter landscape. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
