Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—A bear family find a home in the woods and set off on a "wander" through their new environment. Following the wind, they come upon a fairy-filled landscape. Using leaves as boats, they "wander on the water." When rain disrupts their picnic, they shelter under a mushroom until an owl arrives to carry them home. The text is printed in cursive, and while the prose is spare, Martin's word choice is unusual and delicious. Among other alliterative examples is her description of the family's day as a "wander " in the "wind" and the "wild" and the "warm." Even her use of the word wander for an outing, so similar to wonder, connotes an intent for the characters to really see the world around them. Long brushstrokes depict towering trees and grasses in the lovely illustrations, executed in a muted palette using acrylic on wood and gouache. They provide surprises on almost every page for readers to see and discuss (including the bears' different shades of fur). When viewed up close, the bears appear normal size. But when seen among huge trees, enormous grasses, leaves as big as boats, and fish as big as whales, they are tiny indeed. The owl that comes to their rescue fills the page as they strain to look up at it. Their flight home opens onto a striking gatefold that reprises the many creatures the family has encountered. VERDICT A delightful choice for storytime and small group sharing.—Marianne Saccardi, Children's Literature Consultant, Cambridge, MA

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable little book!
By Mama Bear on December 30, 2020
This is an adorable little book with some great illustrations, as expected from Emily Winfield Martin. It's not like her other books. This one has a story. A tiny family moves in to their new home, and they immediately set out to explore and meet all the little creatures in their area. They travel on the water, get caught in the storm, see fairies, and eat strawberries. They finally get lost, and an owl gives them a ride on its back to take them back home, where all their new friends meet them. I can see how some would think the story is a little disjointed, but the point is that they're wandering aimlessly and don't know what they will experience. Sorry if the pictures don't look great, my toddler was trying to use the book as a table for her toys as I was taking them.
