About the Author
Bill Martin Jr, an elementary-school principal, teacher, writer, and poet, held a doctoral degree in early childhood education. His many books, among them the bestselling classics "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?"; "Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?"; "Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?";""and "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom," are a testament to his ability to speak directly to children. Eric Carle was born in the United States, but spent his early years in Stuttgart, Germany. His many innovative books have earned him a place in the canon of classic children's literature. "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" was the first book he illustrated; he then went on to write and illustrate "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," "The Very Busy Spider," and "The Very Quiet Cricket," as well as many other books for children. Mr. Carle works in a studio near his home in western Massachusetts. www.carlemuseum.org
PreS-Gr 1-- In this new edition of the popular classic (Holt, 1983), the same clean design and crisp text remain. Illustrations, however, have been slightly altered. Stronger colors and more texture help delineate animal bodies more sharply. Positions and shapes are slightly changed, resulting in a less static look. Red Bird is shown in flying position with a sleeker body, sharper beak, and more carefully defined tail and wing features. Yellow Duck has webbed feet and an open bill; Blue Horse has black hooves and teeth showing; Green Frog a spotted back and pink tongue; the former Mother with pale pink skin has become Teacher with beige skin tones and darker hair. The overall effect is livelier and more interesting, although changes are minimal enough that the old edition is still serviceable. When replacements are in order, this will be a welcome addition. --Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
"The contemporary classic . . . perfect for sharing with a group of preschoolers." --"The Horn Book Guide" "A picture book full of rhyme and repetition that will appeal to preschoolers. Carle's large collages bursting with color are perfect for the text."--"Booklist"
