Bear Sees Colors

Karma Wilson, illus. by Jane Chapman. S&S/McElderry, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-4424-6536-7
A walk through the woods provides ample opportunities for spotting colors in Bear and Mouse’s latest adventure. “Mouse and bear are walking;/ they are chitter-chatter-talking./ So much for them to do./ And the bear sees...” begins Wilson, as the animals appear against a white backdrop; both the open-ended rhyme and a pair of blue dragonflies hint at what awaits after the page turn. The next spread is a riot of blue, with Bear splashing in a river while flowers, fish, butterflies, and fruit offer readers many opportunities to “spy blue with Bear.” Though Wilson’s rhymes can be a tad herky-jerky, Chapman’s vibrant acrylics give children plenty to pore over. Ages 3–7. (Sept.)
