Bear is walking along when his hat blows away. It lands on a turtle, who walks away with it into a pond. From there, it is passed from animal to animal. Will bear get his hat back?

This children's picture book by Hong Hai features brightly coloured illustrations made of paper collage, reminiscent of Eric Carle's work in The Very Hungry Caterpillar, or Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Can You See?. Children will probably love the bright colours and all the different animals.

There is no rhyming text in this one, nor much repetition either, but there are lots of movement verbs for young children to learn (walk, swim, float etc.).

I doubt this book will become a classic like Eric Carle's work but I can see it being popular with preschoolers, with its simple text and bright pictures. It's suitable for children aged 2-4.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Clavis Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
