Editorial Reviews


"The opportunity for children to sharpen their rhyming and observation skills as well as learn their colors make this interactive journey a must. Don’t miss it!" (School Library Journal)

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. (Publishers Weekly July 14, 2014)

5.0 out of 5 stars As charming as ever September 24, 2014
What a pleasure it is to see our old friends Bear, Mole, Mouse and Wren back for another adventure. Hare, Badger, Owl and a host of other familiar woodland creatures appear on these pages dedicated to learning colors and celebrating friendship. All of the friends join together throughout the book, which ends in a fun picnic and an invitation to the reader to find colors "just like Bear."

The book beautifully illustrates the colors brown, green, yellow, red, and blue. The rhyming is as smooth as ever, aside from one little blip when green and stream don't seem to quite measure up. A couple of read aloud practice runs will no doubt smooth things out and keep this rollicking collection of friends rolling along.

Two page spreads highlighting the colors alternate with two page spreads featuring the characters and lots of white space. This makes the colors really pop and leaves little doubt about what color is being illustrated. Each color spread also features the color word in a large font.

Anyone familiar with the Bear series of books will gladly embrace this new picnic among friends. It's a short little feel good story of picnics, nature and friendship that will also help your little one learn some valuable basic concepts. This is a perfect choice for older toddlers or young preschoolers just learning their colors, and will serve as a wonderful introduction for the youngest readers to the Bear series of books. With excellent writing and charming illustrations, this book is an enthusiastic recommend for story time and any personal collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely beautiful way to learn colors October 28, 2014
This is one of the most lovely books about colors that I have ever seen. Bear and mouse are walking and talking and as they go along they encounter different colors. On each double spread page you are invited to spy the items with the color for those pages. The items are sometimes subtle so the reader or listener has to look carefully to find them all. Along the journey, bear and mouse encounter different animals such as badger and wren. The characters are adorable.

The illustrations are beautiful and colorful. The verse in rhyme is not over done and draws you in. There are plenty of opportunities for the littlest ones to learn new vocabulary. They will adore this book.

A great intro to colors book for a toddler (at least ours)! Our little guy was already a Karma Wilson fan and familiar with her other books (Bear Gives Thanks, Bear Wants More, Bear Sleeps In, etc), and this newest book does not disappoint. Simple text. Great illustrations. Our little guy loves following bear through the story and finding objects on each page. Took him about a month and he knew red, yellow, green & blue - the colors she focuses on. What a fun book on colors!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bear and Mouse explore a forest of rich colors February 8, 2015
Here's another special Bear Book that focuses on color recognition. As Bear and his friend Mouse meander through the forest they meet their friends and see objects that feature the primary colors. This is a happy group of critters and the rhymed text will help the young reader identify the objects featuring the main colors.

I'm saving this book for my granddaughter. When she's two or so she'll be ready for a picture book like this.

Book supplied by publisher.

This is a cute book to help out with colors. Pages are very vibrant and has numerous things of the specific color to point at and go over with your children. Love the rhymes and the story line. I only wish it had more colors in it but nonetheless it is a great book that my daughter brings to me over and over again.

More About the Author

My life is a series of lessons and moments that see me to the next lessons and moments. Some moments are sweet, some scary, some a blur gone too fast and forever missed. I write for children because all of these steps started there, in childhood, and that sense of wonder, keen curiosity, and the ability to see things much kinder and more magical than they actually were, fades as time passes and years and experience claim your naivety. For me it is a feeling only rekindled when I am creating books, stories and poetry.

My children, family and friends are a great inspiration to me, and the support of my readers is a tremendous honor. It is always my desire to entertain children and encourage them to think about and explore their world, and the worlds beyond, embrace creativity, and love learning for the duration of their life. Knowledge comes through words, so for me literacy is the foundation of education, and it bears the fruit of intelligent and empathetic citizens of this world and humanity.
