Big books to share with a group! Big books are ideal for use with a large group--they are oversized at 14-1/2 x 18 inches. A perfect way to enjoy Holt favorites with many children at once! A collection of endangered animals appear in Bill Martin Jr's rhythmic text with Eric Carle's vibrant images, and all are watched over by our best hope for the future--a dreaming child. From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 1-While some adults may sigh at the similarity of this title to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (1983) and Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? (1995, both Holt), children will be thrilled. A water buffalo, a green sea turtle, a black panther, and other animals answer that familiar call, "What do you see?" Readers view all these creatures and more, a treat considering that the 10 animals featured are all endangered species and therefore rare sights. The book closes wistfully with a dreaming child who sees the animals all "wild and free." Names like "macaroni penguin" contribute to some awkwardness in the text's rhythm, but the bright collage images and lilting language bring the animals to life on the page-soaring, swinging, or even strutting. Opening with a helpful note on the importance of animal protection, this title will make a perfect segue into conversations about endangered species. Julie Roach, Malden Public Library, MA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Booklist PreS-Gr. 2. In this book, Martin and Carle change the focus of their classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? to endangered species. Using deceptively simple repetitive rhyme, double-page spreads lead from one animal to the next, "Red Wolf, Red Wolf, / what do you see? / I see a whooping crane / flying by me." The pictures, featuring animals strolling, splashing, and soaring, are brilliant lessons in the application of color, shape, form, and texture. Carle's use of negative space and of sculptural line conveys not only the essence of each animal but also the energy of its movement. The book ends with a dreaming child who sees all the animals: "all wild and free--that's what I see!" A fine read-aloud with a subtle, yet clear, message. GraceAnne DeCandido Copyright
