Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leslie Rounds
Using felt and antique fabrics, Beaton has created charming, detailed double-page collage illustrations of animals in field and forest to accompany the simple rhyming text Young listeners will enjoy carefully studying button-eyed frogs and sequin-scaled fish, while the brief text comments on how much easier it is to spot most animals than the enormous moose: "Where are they hiding? They're so big and tall!" Illustrated endnotes offer short descriptive paragraphs about each of the animals mentioned and an opportunity to match several of them with their tracks. A longer endnote provides information about moose. This book will be a desirable addition to most collections for preschoolers, but especially useful in northern states like Maine and Alaska.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-An unseen narrator lists the variety of northern wildlife she has seen, while expressing her desire to see a moose. Even just one glimpse of the elusive beast would fulfill her wish. The simple text is brought to life by endearing fabric appliqu illustrations. Each spread brims with cuddly looking felt animals and birds, adorned with button eyes, sequin spots, and pom-pom noses. The textured artwork lovingly depicts horses in a green pasture, beavers gnawing white birch trees, ducks swimming in a blue-patterned pond, etc. Colorful flowers made from an assortment of beads, fabric scraps, and creative stitch work add depth and contrast to the pictures. Observant children will notice that the yearned-for moose appears in each spread, often partly hidden but sometimes in plain view, adding to the fun. Back matter includes an annotated picture catalog of the animals mentioned and shows their tracks. A cozy fall-turns-to-winter story to share with budding nature lovers.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Find that Moose!

    This is a beautiful little book about trying to find a moose. It depicts all of the seasons, other wildlife, and has an easy flow when reading it aloud. The illustrations are completely captivating for my toddler, who is not allowed to turn the pages on her own. The artist uses needlework to illustrate the story and it works so well in a picture book! The book itself is full of useful little facts about Moose Country and wildlife. It's just beautiful. I highly recommend it for bday and xmas because of the seasons. It's also good for toddlers, but it's a top shelf book :o)
