PreSchool-Grade 2?Baby Bear, joined by Mother, Father, or their friend Goldilocks, celebrates 15 special days throughout the year. Each occasion is featured in a splendid two-page watercolor illustration with a short poem honoring the event. Readers will enjoy the rich images filled with plenty of detail to carry the eye from corner to corner and back, with a bit of humor or small surprise tucked inside. Inventive use of white space results in pages that are full but never cluttered. Harder to find holidays such as Arbor Day, Groundhog Day, and Labor Day are included along with Mother's and Father's Days, Earth Day, Chanukah, and May Day. The poetry highlights simple pleasures, happy imagery, and loving relationships. A fine addition that youngsters will come back to again and again.?Virginia E.
