Publisher Description:
A big happy frog, a plump purple cat, a handsome blue horse, and a soft yellow duck-- all parade across the pages of this delightful book. Children will immediately respond to Eric Carle's flat, boldly colored collages. Combined with Bill Martin's singsong text, they create unforgettable images of these endearing animals.

Contributor Bio(s): Martin, Bill: - Bill Martin, Jr. (1916-2004) was an elementary-school principal, teacher, writer, and poet. His more than 300 books, among them the bestselling classics Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?; Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?; Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?; and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, are a testament to his ability to speak directly to children. Martin held a doctoral degree in early childhood education. Born in Kansas, he worked as an elementary-school principal in Chicago before moving to New York City, where he worked in publishing developing innovative reading programs for schools. After several years, he devoted himself full-time to writing his children's books. He lived in New York until 1993, when he moved to Texas. He lived in the east Texas woods, near the town of Commerce, until he passed away in 2004.Carle, Eric: - Eric Carle is one of America's leading children's book illustrators. Born in the United States, he spent some time in Germany where he studied at the Academy of Applied Art in Stuttgart. His work has won many awards and has been published in more than a dozen countries around the world. He is author and illustrator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and illustrator of Bill Martin, Jr.'s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 1997)
The contemporary classic, beloved of preschoolers and beginning readers alike, loses nothing in its translation to a board book. Carle's bold, brilliantly colored animals against a white background are still striking, and the simple text is large enough and in a clean enough typeface to be quite readable.

Teachers and emerging readers have already made Bill Martin's books their own, but these new editions are intended to cement the deal--and extend the brand. The trim size is smaller, and the text is placed uniformly across the bottom of each page and broken into short phrases. Back matter includes a letter to parents and teachers and further reading activities.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 1992 May)
PreS-Gr 1-- In this new edition of the popular classic (Holt, 1983), the same clean design and crisp text remain. Illustrations, however, have been slightly altered. Stronger colors and more texture help delineate animal bodies more sharply. Positions and shapes are slightly changed, resulting in a less static look. Red Bird is shown in flying position with a sleeker body, sharper beak, and more carefully defined tail and wing features. Yellow Duck has webbed feet and an open bill; Blue Horse has black hooves and teeth showing; Green Frog a spotted back and pink tongue; the former Mother with pale pink skin has become Teacher with beige skin tones and darker hair. The overall effect is livelier and more interesting, although changes are minimal enough that the old edition is still serviceable. When replacements are in order, this will be a welcome addition. --Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY Copyright 1992 Cahners Business Information.
