Friday Favorites

by Ashley Wolff
Baby Bear Counts One by Ashley Wolff is a terrific counting book. It's not just a counting book either.  When it names the animals, you hear a sound and Mama Bear tells Baby Bear about the animal they hear.  It's about how different animals get ready for winter.  We learn as Baby Bear learns. 
The illustrations in this book are made by printing linoleum blocks in black on Arches Cover paper.  These are then hand colored with watercolor.
This title will be used in preschool Storytime with four and five year-olds.  It will be an excellent story to use one-on-one with a parent or grandparent.  I love the printing and painting.  There is life and excitement in this counting book.
