Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Beginning reader books do not have to be boring. In this "I Like to Read" entry, we meet Bear and Chipmunk, who are watching the snow fall. Bear, who likes the snow, goes out to dig. "Me too!" exclaims Chipmunk, to this and every other suggestion by Bear, as he joins him digging, making a snowman, skating, falling, and skiing in the deep snow. When Bear is cold and suggests going home, of course Chipmunk again says, "Me too!" This refrain only changes when they are in bed and Bear wishes him, "Sweet dreams." "You too!" is Chipmunk's reply. Gorbachev uses pen-and-ink and watercolors loosely to create appealing anthropomorphic characters and their activities. He dresses them in an assortment of cold weather clothing that adds humor. Eventually fatigue ends the simple tale in homey comfort and sleep. An enjoyable read that will fit well in a classroom, library, or home. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

PreS-Gr 1—This simple, sweet story of Bear and his affable little friend, Chipmunk, follows the pair through a day of wintertime activities. "I love snow!" Bear says as they gaze out the window at the falling flakes. "Me, too!" Chipmunk replies, cap and sweater in hand. Outdoors, Bear has lots of ideas: he will dig a path in the snow, make a snowman, ice skate, and ski. And so will Chipmunk. At home, over cocoa and cookies in front of the fireplace, outerwear hanging on a clothesline, they reflect on the fun they had. Short declarative sentences and a great deal of repetition make this picture book perfect for developing readers. The large, joyful watercolor and ink illustrations are enchanting and will help children make predictions regarding unfamiliar words. Well done.—Erica Thorsen Payne, Meriwether Lewis Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA
Kirkus Reviews
Bear and Chipmunk enjoy a day together in the snow. Bear wants to do something, and Chipmunk replies with an agreeable, "Me, too!" no matter the activity. These two friends dig out the walkway from their house, build a snowman, go ice-skating, fall down, ski, fall down again and remember the day. Predictable text allows new readers to feel confident, while lively ink-and-watercolor illustrations extend the text. Sharp-eyed readers will notice the snow toys (in two sizes) lined up on the first spread, ready for the day. And, after the two friends go to sleep, the heavy snow in the moonlight suggests that tomorrow will be just as much fun. Chipmunk's tiny green outfit, especially when juxtaposed with the sheer size of Bear, will amuse readers as they explore the simple story. Each page is filled with details that will encourage new readers or lap listeners to slow down and find the big and little objects (right down to their bedside glasses!) that belong to these two critters. From their adventures in the snow to a warm snuggle in their tiny and huge beds, Bear and Chipmunk are friends that new readers will want to turn to again and again. Here's hoping there will be more.
