PreSchool-Grade 1?Bright, cheerful watercolor- and-ink cartoons will draw children to these fanciful titles. The stories are extremely simple, but the repetitive texts and the silly animal characters will have youngsters asking for repeated readings. In Buzz, the type twists and turns as readers follow Bumblebee across the warm-weather scenes. Each creature he encounters tells him to "Buzz off!" until, at last, he meets a friend. In I Don't Care, Bear walks blithely through a winter landscape, unfazed by the growing number of large or ferocious animals following him. He freaks out when he realizes that a "teeny-weeny mouse" is among them. Don't worry about reality here?it's easy to accept a snake in the snow, for example, especially a green one with pink spots. Bumblebee's story follows a pattern, and Bear's tale is cumulative and full of rhyming words. Both will be a success in story programs.?Darcy Schild, Schwegler Elementary School, Lawrence, KS
