A walk through the woods provides ample opportunities for spotting colors in Bear and Mouse’s latest adventure. “Mouse and bear are walking;/ they are chitter-chatter-talking./ So much for them to do./ And the bear sees...” begins Wilson, as the animals appear against a white backdrop; both the open-ended rhyme and a pair of blue dragonflies hint at what awaits after the page turn. The next spread is a riot of blue, with Bear splashing in a river while flowers, fish, butterflies, and fruit offer readers many opportunities to “spy blue with Bear.” Though Wilson’s rhymes can be a tad herky-jerky, Chapman’s vibrant acrylics give children plenty to pore over. Ages 3–7. (Sept.)

Wilson and Chapman's Bear is back, this time for younger listeners who are learning colors. Rollicking rhymes, objects to spot and well-timed page turns will have kids shouting out: "Mouse and Bear are walking; / they are chitter-chatter-talking. / So much for them to do. / And the bear sees… // blue! / Blue flowers / by the trail. / Blue berries. / Blue pail. / Blue, blue EVERYWHERE! / Can you spy blue with Bear?" The two meet Hare for an exploration of the color red; the three seek out yellow with Badger; Gopher and Mole join in to find green; and Raven, Owl and Wren introduce the color brown. The adventure ends with a full spread featuring every color; readers are invited to spot them. Solid rhymes give way to stream/green and round/brown, though readers likely won't care—Bear is that beloved (not to mention adorable) a character by now, and Chapman's friendly and energetic illustrations have so many things of each hue for them to identify—not just the items named in the text. Light on story but full of delightful details and lots of color practice, this is sure to garner many new fans for Bear and his group of friends. (Picture book. 2-6)
