Smokey the Bear (Little Golden Book) by Jane Werner WatsonThis book has a number of good features but is very dated and leaves some ends untied. Any observant child would want to know what happened to Smokeys mother after the forest fire. The anthropomorphism Smokey undergoes is abrupt and unexplained. His accoutrements such as a shovel and rangers hat are never explicitly explained. Finally, the tips he provides are somewhat dated (calling cigarettes smokes) and not geared to more modern concerns about forest fires which could foreseeably include global warming and pollution as well as regular campfires. Sweet, but lacking.
