--Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 2011
* "Wolff’s (Compost Stew) watercolor-tinted linocuts make each page of this story simultaneously cozy and dramatic—cozy because they star a fuzzy bear cub and his mother, and dramatic because each one contrasts dark shapes with washes of light and color.... Children will be absorbed by the complex textures of Wolff’s linocuts, the Japanese woodblock–style graded shades of the sky, and the reassuring comfort of a world that is always safely guarded by Mama Bear."
--Publishers Weekly, December 5, 2011, *STAR
"Luscious full-page linoleum print and watercolor illustrations delight with bright colors.... It would work well in storytimes or one on one."
--School Library Journal, January 2012
"Wolff’s illustrations, black linoleum-block prints washed with watercolors, feature bold lines, strong
compositions, and sensitive uses of color that will draw readers into the pictures. Excellent for group
sharing.... The quiet text is made up of Baby Bear’s questions about the sensory wonders of his world and his mother’s replies, and given a chance, young children will be happy to supply the answers first. An engaging concept book with just enough narrative for its audience."
--Booklist, February 1, 2012
“The pacing of the book is perfectly suited to its young audience. With each new encounter Baby Bear’s question and Mama’s answer occur on one double-page spread while the next spread pauses to let Baby Bear (and readers) revel in the colors and in nature…. Wolff’s art—linoleum block prints hand-colored with watercolor—capture not only the glories of the natural world but also the loving relationship between parent and child. Satisfyingly, the book comes full circle, ending at bedtime: “‘Good night, Baby Bear,’ Mama says. ‘Good night, Mama,’ says Baby Bear. Then Baby Bear closes his eyes and sees nothing but deep, soft black.”
—The Horn Book, March/April 2012
“There’s no better way to teach little ones their colors than with the whimsical, wonder-filled “Baby Bear Sees Blue” by Ashley Wolff.”
—The Missourian, February 11-12, 2012

On a beautiful day with the sun rising high into the sky a little baby bear wakes up alongside his mama. Drawn to the new light he asks "Who is warming me, mama?" "That is the sun" she replies, so he sits and looks at it a while. Once they leave their den there are so many other things to see. Leaves are waving green.Read more ›
Even on days when storytime falls into the latter category and I am feeling drained of patience and perspective, this book is like hitting a reset button. It is sweet but not saccharine; simple but meaningful. It's all about a child discovering the most basic things for the first time. And that's one of my favorite aspects of parenting: introducing my daughter to the world. That's when I feel most acutely the wonder of this job. When my kid asks, "what's this called?" anybody could tell her. But I get to do it. I get to see her brow furrow while she tries to synthesize a new word or idea or feeling. And even on days when bedtime couldn't come fast enough, this book reminds me that this parenting thing is pretty magical. And it does so without being heavy-handed or obvious, which I really appreciate. Kids' books are easy to overdo with overly sentimental language, and a lot of authors overdo them. Not this one.
