The Elliott Review:
Bear's problem in this story is one that many kids have from time to time - wearing something that is not the "cool" thing to wear, in this case - PINK! Since Bear believes his pink underwear are lucky, he wears them despite the ridicule of his teammates and the other team. He ignores their taunting and goes on to win the game.The illustrations are just ... cute! All of the characters are funny-looking in a good way. Their facial expressions are hilarious, though simply drawn. Kids will love that this book deals with underwear, a subject that will engage many young readers very quickly. This can lead parents or teachers into a discussion about self-acceptance and about not judging others by the way but on who they are.
