9780805099492. ea vol: illus. by Eric Carle. 28p. (Brown Bear and Friends). Holt. 2014. Board. $12.99.
PreS-Gr 1—Lap book editions (8.5" × 11") of two of this creative team's classic titles. The simple, repetitive texts encourage toddler interaction, and the bold iconic images are perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing. The first title features 10 North American animals, while the second spotlights 10 endangered or threatened species. Carle's gorgeous painted and cut-paper collages are enormously appealing and engaging.
New ed., 2003. This lap-size board book's rhyming text follows the familiar pattern of Brown Bear, Brown Bear. A panda, water buffalo, spider monkey, whooping crane, and six other endangered species parade across the pages; at the end, a dreaming child sees all ten animals "wild and free." Carle's striking, brilliantly colored illustrations are as eye-catching as always, making this ideal for use with groups.
