Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS–First seen in Baby Bear Sees Blue (S & S, 2012), the curious cub returns in this fall-themed counting book. Mama Bear gently answers Baby Bear's questions about who is making a noise as he counts different animals gathering food, migrating, or dashing through the woods and fields in preparation for winter. Each spread includes onomatopoeic words to suggest the animal to both children and the bear. Wolff's stunning linoleum block and watercolor illustrations are suffused with autumn light and color, and the creatures appear to swim, fly, and jump off the pages. Extreme close-ups are juxtaposed with larger framing illustrations that celebrate the season, the creatures portrayed, and the playful bear. Successful as a counting book, an autumnal celebration, and a cozy book to share either one-on-one or in a group, this title will be warmly welcomed in all libraries.–Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WIα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

This follow-up to Baby Bear Sees Blue (2012) finds Mama and her cub on the cusp of winter. Baby Bear is curious about the sounds he hears around him, asking Mama questions like “Mama, who woke me?” After each inquiry, a page turn reveals the source of the ruckus: woodland folk who are busy preparing for the upcoming season. A woodpecker hunts a beetle (1 woodpecker, Baby Bear counts), 2 squirrels gather nuts, 3 beavers (“Whap! Whap! Whap!”) find sticks, and so on. When Baby Bear gets to 10, it’s snowflakes he is counting, and that means it’s time for Mama and baby to hibernate. As with the first book, Wolff gently introduces the natural world and seasons to toddlers, who will find plenty to explore in the double-page spreads, as frogs leap into ponds, and birds perch in tree branches. The linoleum block illustrations, hand colored with watercolor, present fall in all its spectacular glory, and the warmth between Mama and her child shines through. Ideal for both one-on-one and group sharing. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Ann Kelley

I dare say my son is Ashley Wolff's #1 fan. Between this and Baby Bear Sees Blue, he's the happiest camper. The artwork is fantastic and he's (presumably) learning to count here and his colors there.

My only request would be for these to be published on that cardboard stock. The paper quality is wonderful but the images are so vibrant my son wants nothing more than to touch the pages and, being a baby, he's just as likely to tear the pages as anything. And he loves them so much we want the books to stay in one piece. And there is something to be said for the books we keep for him to be the very same ones he read.

The adorable Baby Bear is back, and this time he's mastering counting. More than a simple counting book, Baby Bear Counts One shows the forest preparing for winter. Young children will not only learn to count along with Baby Bear, but they'll also learn about the sights and sounds of autumn, while enjoying the lyrical language of this rhythmic text. Illustrated with gorgeous lino cut illustrations in lovely fall colors, this book is sure to delight children and adults alike.

It is such a delight to find a cumulative counting book that is neither simplistic nor cartoony, but instead has a strong, clear story centered around a curious little bear and the changing season, and - best of all - has rich linocut and watercolor illustrations that spread across the pages and draw children and grownups into taking a closer look. We loved "Baby Bear Sees Blue" and this book is a wonderful and beautiful sequel.

I am amazed by the lushness of Ashley's artwork, especially knowing she uses a combination of linocut and watercolor. How does she DO that!? And her love and passion for the environment comes through in spades as baby bear learns about the world around him. This is a definite "awwwwwww" read for you and your little ones.

So many concept books, especially counting books, offer only pictures and a minimal text which isn't very challenging or interesting. Kudos go to this San Francisco author/illustrator for not only creating top notch art but fashioning an interesting story that preschoolers and their parents can get into a bit. Winter is rapidly approaching and the cute bear cub featured in this book sets about counting the other forest creatures he sees preparing for the cold days to come.

Besides finding an introduction to a number of animals and seeing how they prepare for the change of seasons your child can count the various groupings like the two squirrels in a tree and the eight frogs in a pond. Older youngsters can also practice their reading skills here as well. For every age level this is a win-win situation.
