Bear Sees Blue

We liked this book. The pictures were nice. The nature was nice. The emphasis on colors was nice. And the story wasn't bad.

Great for 1-3 year olds

Momma bear answers Baby Bears questions about things he sees and smells, and then Baby Bear sees their colors. The illustrations are vibrant and clear and would be well-received by 1 - 3 year olds. There are also many smaller creatures that are hidden in the illustrations that are fun to find.

Good for story time

I liked this although it felt a little bit like a Frankenbook (i.e. several picture book tropes mashed together): bears + color recognition + nature + idealized child/parent relationship. I'm not getting a strong Caldecott contender vibe from it (I read it because it was listed by Betsy Bird/Fuse #8 as a possibility) but I've been wrong before. I could see it being a well received story time title.
