Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jillian Kobelin
This lift-the-flap board book comes from the National Geographic "Wild Tales" series. Bear twins Bella and Bobby are eager to see Aunt Bertha and their cousins. On the way to greet them, Bobby takes a tumble down the hill into the river and needs help to get out of the rushing waters. The story is accompanied by real photographs of the bear characters that pop amongst the basic blue and green illustrations of the bears' forest habitat. Each page has a flap that little readers can lift to reveal additional text or pictures of the bears. The underside of each flap is simple brown cardboard, but it would have benefitted the aesthetic appeal of the book to have it match the main color of the page. The back cover of the book includes fun parents' tips for reading, such as encouraging children to read familiar words, asking them to explain the story in their own words, or talking about different types of bears and their environments. For animal-loving children, this book is fun and interactive and could be coupled with other "Wild Tales" stories about monkeys, lions, elephants, or more! Reviewer: Jillian Kobelin

Two bear cubs get themselves in a jam in this ineffective lift-the-flap story. Bobby and Bella go off to meet relatives, and Bobby ends up taking a tumble into the river. Their aunt and cousins arrive just in the nick of time to rescue the cub and bring him home. Like others in the Wild Tales series, the story is mainly composed of the dialogue and features cute photos of critters grafted onto scenery painted with thick black lines. The flaps, which are unfinished brown cardboard on the verso, are a big distraction, and there is little rhyme or reason to their presence. They often block the view of the characters and rarely reveal anything new or surprising on their interiors. A companion book, Ella's Bath (978-1-4263-1360-8), features a baby elephant playing a trick on a cheeky bird, cooling off in the mud and taking a bath. Again, the unfinished-looking flaps reveal little. A note to parents on the back covers of both offerings encourages interaction between youngster and grown-up. National Geographic, known for its nonfiction publishing, provides little information to tots in this slight tale. (Board book. 2-4)
