Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Margaret Jackson
Fans of the Hagues' s Alphabears and Numbears, will find themselves on very familiar ground. This month-by-month celebration of the year is filled with Kathleen's playful verse and Michael's adorable bears. Each illustration is wonderfully detailed. Children and grownups alike will enjoy "investigating" each one before turning the page.

PreS-Gr 1Like its predecessors, Alphabears (1984) and Numbears (1986, both Holt), this attractive book uses a charming variety of bears to illustrate a concept. This time, each month is celebrated with a different bear, accompanied by a four-line verse. From their unbearish names (Ryan, Taylor Ann, Sue) to their winsome expressions and seasonal settings, each creature is a delight. The rich colors and humorous details invite hours of looking as new discoveries are made again and again from June's clouds in the shape of a castle to August's fireflies to October's trick-or-treat bag. This is sure to be a favorite read-aloud in storytime and in classrooms. A visual treat.Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY
