Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Yip, Yap and Yep are three pandas living in a big bamboo forest. They spend their days gathering and preparing bamboo, but yearn for more exciting activities. One day they decide to venture into the city. There the three bears find plenty of new adventures as they play their flutes on the corners, climb telephone poles and even perform in the circus. City life seems enchanting! But when the snow begins to fall and the bears shiver in the cold, Yip, Yap and Yep begin to long for their bamboo forest once more. Hiding in a truck bound for the country, the three pandas make their way home where they contentedly return to gathering bamboo. This classic tale of the search for adventure has the added twist of three loveable pandas and the beauty of Chinese culture. Naava's bright illustrations bring the bears to life while Wahl's simple text weave both folklore and adventure together into a heartwarming story. 2000, Caroline House/Boyds Mill Press, Ages 3 to 7, $15.95.

PreS-Three pandas, Yip, Yap, and Yep, grow tired of gathering and chewing bamboo and decide to explore the world beyond their leafy glade. They sing and play bamboo flutes to earn their train fare to the city. Once there, they quickly become disillusioned and homesick, so they head back home. Despite the appeal of the cuddly, chubby creatures, depicted in flat, stylized acrylics, the "bamboo-is-always-greener" story is bland and lifeless.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Midwest Book Review
Kids ages 2-5 will find this simple yet delightful, with Naava providing the engaging drawings for the story of Yip, Yap and Yep: three pandas who leave the forest for the city. A fun set of zany encounters with humans result.
