From School Library Journal
PreS—Under the guidance of his watchful mother, an inquisitive baby bear romps through a rainbow of shades, encountering everything from the golden yellows of the sun to the juicy reds of some berries, in this gentle concept book. Enchanting watercolors convey an idyllic natural world and a strong parent-child bond that will keep readers young and old turning pages. --This text refers to the Board book edition.
"Inspired by the mother bear and cub in Blueberries for Sal, Wolff creates a gentel story for toddlers that introduces colors and images from the natural world.... Wolff's lovely compositions feature inked linoleum block prints that render those bears a strinkingly deep, matte black. Lush, washy watercolors illuminate the scenes--colors in the downpour's puddles reflect a rainbow. Curious Baby Bear is 100-percent toddler, and Wolff skillfully captures both the bear-ish...and the human.... Imbued with a spirit of exploration, fostered by parental protection, Baby Bear's colorful adventures will enrich repeat bedtime read-alouds."
--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.”

My kid likes it!
The artwork is bold, with bright colors, and lots of detail which makes it enjoyable to read again and again.
We found this at the library, and could not get enough of this book, so I knew I had to buy it, when the time came to return it to the library.
