Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A rhyming text names animals of the forest and then shows them all asleep on the last spread in this board book. "Bear naps / fox trots/ ..deer leaps / rabbit hops" but for some reason on the next two pages we have "soaring owl and dashing mouse" which break out of the established pattern. The simple drawings are appealing and, for the most part, the rhythm of the text is maintained.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-These board books introduce nature to young patrons. Two words per page describe animal activity in, on, and around a particular habitat. In Forest, "bear naps, fox trots, woodpecker taps, beaver chops...." A few of the associations are less straightforward, e.g., "skunk creeps, raccoon drops...." In Pond, "...snail peeks, duck floats, newt sneaks, bullfrog croaks...." Simple cartoon creatures are drawn in soft tones and outlined in black to add emphasis and visibility. While not first purchases, these titles do have appealing artwork.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
