The Bear's Sea Escape by Benjamin Chaud -- ADVISABLE

Chaud, Benjamin The Bear's Sea Escape. PICTURE BOOK. Chronicle Books, 2014. $17.99. Content: G.

Papa Bear and his cub have trouble hibernating when it's cold, so they search for a warm place to sleep. Certain they've found the spot, they curl up in the teddy bear section of a department store -- only to have the cub carried away by a little boy who thinks he's a stuffed animal. Now Papa Bear is searching everywhere for his baby, who always seems to be just out of his sight. This book is reminiscent of the Where's Waldo series, in that both the cub and his father are on every page, hidden among all the action depicted in the very busy illustrations. Those who catch on to the fact may have fun finding the two everywhere, although others may miss the point without some guidance.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
