Overview

How do you use your five senses, and what do you do if something goes wrong with them? The forest friends -- Hawk, Rabbit, Bear, Skunk, and Squirrel -- know, and their stories show children what happens when a sense needs a little help to work better. When Hawk bumps into a mountain, Owl prescribes glasses. When Skunk catches a cold, Owl gives him syrup to help him smell again. And when Squirrel gets a paw full of thorns, Owl pulls them out and Squirrel learns to be more careful about what he touches!

Just right for preschoolers, these friendly animals and their entertaining stories teach children about their senses and what to do when they need fixing!

Animal friends share their experiences with the five senses.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this tale from the team behind Farm Friends Clean Up, five forest inhabitants gather around the campfire and take turns responding to Boar's prompt, "Who has a story about one of the five senses?" Hawk tells of the time that his impaired vision caused him to crash into a mountain; Bear was once stung by a bee (on the tongue) while foraging and couldn't taste honey. Fortunately, in each case, Dr. Owl was around to dispense the appropriate medical care whether it meant plucking splinters from Squirrel's paws or cleaning excess wax from Rabbit's ears so he could hear again. Though the premise is forced, the text may inspire some cause-and-effect discussions about the five senses from young readers, and may even placate those who are doctor's office-phobic. But it's Chessa's earth-toned, dense brushwork that supplies the book's real pleasure. Making the most of the book's oblong format, she stretches many of her full-bleed scenes across an entire spread for maximum visual impact. In one humorous vignette, a bewildered-looking Skunk who has been sprayed accidentally by a friend but is so congested that he can't smell the results occupies one end of a seesaw, while all his animal friends huddle together at the other end, holding their own or each other's noses. Ages 3-6. (Nov.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
The forest friends are telling stories. Each story features one of the five senses, but each creature is impaired. The hawk bumps into the side of a mountain because he cannot see very well. Rabbit is lost and cannot hear his friends calling his name due to earwax. Bear cannot taste the honey when his tongue is stung by Bee. And so it goes. Fortunately, Owl tends to each problem, dispensing aid and comfort so that the animals may see, touch, taste, hear and smell again. This picture book will put in context the study of the five senses for Pre-K and Kindergarten. Bold lines and an expressive style characterize the browns, greens and yellows of the fanciful illustrations. 2001, Alfred A. Knopf, $16.99 and $14.95. Ages 3 to 5. Reviewer: Jacki Vawter
School Library Journal
PreS-K-One night around the campfire, the forest friends get together to share their stories about the five senses. Each one has a problem and a tale to tell. For example, Hawk can't see very well until Owl, the forest doctor, gives him a pair of glasses. Rabbit has wax in his ears and can't hear his friends calling him. Again Owl comes to the rescue. Through these stories, the animals realize how important the senses are, and that they sometimes need a little help to function properly. The brightly colored paintings with heavy black outlines match the story to a tee. The creatures are not drawn to scale, but they are meant to be fun, not anatomically correct. This is a serviceable concept book and a good choice for read-aloud enjoyment.-Karen Scott, Valley Intermediate School, Pelham, AL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
