PreS-Gr 2-A satisfying story, economically told through simple, straightforward language and energetic illustrations. Little Mo, a small polar bear, tries sliding on the ice, but instead takes several spills. First one, and then several larger bears join her and they all slide and glide around. Soon the Big Ones crowd and bump the small bear, overpowering her and making her fall. Finally, they tire and go home, leaving Little Mo to practice and perfect her skills on her own. The pencil and watercolor illustrations accurately depict the Arctic-pale blue ice, stark snow, and gold and peach sky-and perfectly capture the animal antics. The double-page spreads are occasionally divided into panels, each furthering the action. In the carefully composed pictures, Little Mo, in her brightly colored scarf, is always the focal point. The loose line of the drawings coupled with the composition gives a sense of movement to the pictures. No extraneous details or cluttered composition detract from the simple story of a small bear in a big world. Good for winter story time or one-on-one sharing, Little Mo will appeal to children who have been buffeted by the Big Ones and yet have managed to accomplish something on their own.- Cynthia K. Richey, Mt. Lebanon Public Library, Pittsburgh, PA
