Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS--A simple text accompanies double-page spreads that show Bean, an appealing black cat, engaging in various activities. Some of the humor may be over the heads of the intended audience. For example, in one scene ("Bean bag"), the animal's head is hidden inside a paper bag. Young children may not get the idea of "Human Bean," showing the cat lying in a person's lap. However, they will still be able to follow the action and enjoy the brightly colored paintings. They will also be drawn to the small size of this board book, which makes it perfect for exploring with their eyes and fingers.--Elisabeth H. Hall, Arden Elementary School, Columbia, SC
