Top of the Shelf: Baby Bear Sees Blue

Baby Bear Sees Blue

by Ashley Wolff (Beach Lane Books) The story follows a day through the happy-to-be-together Mama and child in an animated world: the sun speaks through a warm light, oak leaves wave. Baby Bear finds blue birds, red strawberries, orange butterflies, and who could choose a favorite color among these so beautifully done on linoleum block prints, hand colored with vivid watercolors? A thunderstorm makes them hurry home, then marvel at a rainbow. The cozy book begins with us peering into a dark, mysterious den, and ends with the "deep, soft black" Baby Bear sees when he closes his eyes, and a view of the night sky looking out from the den.
