Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A very simple rhyming text features a young child and a light brown teddy bear. Since they are pals, the pictures show them having tea, stacking blocks, drawing, and more. The closing scene of them both reading books is a nice touch. This is a board book that should please the very young who will undoubtedly see themselves in similar fun. 2000, Viking/Penguin Putnam, Ages 1 to 3, $5.99. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

PreS-Two board books with simple and descriptive rhyming texts. In Bear's Day, a toddler plays with a teddy bear, brushes its hair, has tea, counts blocks, marches, claps, etc. Cat's Play features the same child interacting with a pet feline. They watch fish swim, eat, toss a ball, and play peek-a-boo together. The large, uncluttered illustrations on colored backgrounds are done in soft, gentle hues. The round, somewhat lumpy figures are appealing and animated. Solid additions for one-on-one or group sharing.-JoAnn Jonas, Carlsbad City Library, San Diego, CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

In these companion board books(Cat's Play), a sprightly toddler has old-fashioned fun messing around with a few simple toys, a cat, and a stuffed bear. Rhyming captions accompany vibrant pen-and-watercolor-washed illustrations.

Kirkus Reviews
This pair of beguiling board books focuses on a busy toddler and his playmates. In Bear's Day, the child and his teddy spend the day engaged in baby-friendly activities: having tea parties, stacking blocks, and more. Ernst depicts activities familiar to young children, such as coloring and clapping hands. In the companion title, Cat's Play, the same toddler shares his day with a fuzzy gray cat. Together the two eat, clean up, and play. Ernst emphasizes the similar interests of the duo as they observe goldfish swimming about (albeit with different intentions), play with a toy mouse, and try on mother's shoes. Both books feature simple, crisp rhymes describing the interactions between the child and his friends: "Time for tea / One, two, three." Pastel-colored backgrounds in soft lavenders, soothing yellows and luminous pinks are a perfect backdrop for Ernst's gentle images illuminating the magic of friendship. Cheerful scenes portray the boisterous play and affection the child holds for his playmates. Uncomplicated artwork allows children to make the connection between the words and pictures. Cuddly sweet, these board books are made for lap-sharing and read-aloud sessions. (Board books. 0-4)
