Amazon reviewer History_of_Art_Geek says: "This book bears Maurice Sendak's name, but in truth it was illustrated by Heather Green, and written by Else Holmelund Minarik. The book is based off the show Little Bear, and although the illustrations are different, the writing feels the same as the show".
Amazon reviewer LTPZ says: "Why this book is out of print is beyond me...I showed it to a priest and he immediately wanted a copy of the book to use when working with the children. There aren't many Byzantine Orthodox style books for children and this yet includes the alphabet too"!
Amazon reviewer Mei-Li G. Beane says: "Tomie dePaola has done it again! Here is a beautifully written and illustrated children's book about a religious subject that is truly worth owning. The colorful artwork will interest younger children, and interesting facts and stories about the Blessed Mother will intrigue and excite older readers".
