Author(s): Bill Martin Jr.
The creators of the children's classic "Brown Bear, Brown, What Do You See?" team up again in this special book about a very important topic - endangered animals. A bald eagle soars, a spider monkey swings, a macaroni penguin struts and a red wolf sneaks through Bill Martin Jr's rhythmic text and Eric Carle's vibrant images, and all are watched over by our best hope for the future - a dreaming child.
Carle's books all have an educational element -- they teach about animals, numbers, colours and nature -- but a big part of their appeal is that they are not didactic or laboured, but light and entertaining. There's warmth and humour there too Junior Eric Carle ... has an unfailing magic. His gentle, glowing collages are satisfying for parent and child The Times
