School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-- In this new edition of the popular classic (Holt, 1983), the same clean design and crisp text remain. Illustrations, however, have been slightly altered. Stronger colors and more texture help delineate animal bodies more sharply. Positions and shapes are slightly changed, resulting in a less static look. Red Bird is shown in flying position with a sleeker body, sharper beak, and more carefully defined tail and wing features. Yellow Duck has webbed feet and an open bill; Blue Horse has black hooves and teeth showing; Green Frog a spotted back and pink tongue; the former Mother with pale pink skin has become Teacher with beige skin tones and darker hair. The overall effect is livelier and more interesting, although changes are minimal enough that the old edition is still serviceable. When replacements are in order, this will be a welcome addition. --Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Booklist Review

Ages 2-6. First available in 1967 from Holt, Rinehart and Winston's school division, this was again published in 1983 as a trade book [BKL D 1 83]. Brown Bear's popularity has snowballed ever since, as preschool and primary grade teachers spread the word: first, that it's a terrific book for teaching colors and also that, with the whole-language movement taking off, it's a high-interest, beginning reader with rhythm, repetition, and predictability. The new edition offers the original wording, with such minor changes from the 1983 edition as "redbird" to "red bird" and "I see a mother looking at me" to "I see a teacher looking at me." The new illustrations feature crisper lines, bolder colors, and a bit more texture than the originals, making them even more striking. ~--Carolyn Phelan

Horn Book Review

The contemporary classic, beloved of preschoolers and beginning readers alike, loses nothing in its translation to a board book. Carle's bold, brilliantly colored animals against a white background are still striking, and the simple text is large enough and in a clean enough typeface to be quite readable.
