Praise for Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?

“Another standout from the creators of a line of perennial favorites.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Even after more than 35 years, [Carle's] style still radiates the same remarkable elemental beauty.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Carle's trademark paint and cut-out style and Martin's rhythmic and repetitive text full of animal observations engages little ones and keeps them turning the pages.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Carle's use of negative space and of sculptural line conveys not only the essence of each animal but also the energy of its movement. A fine read-aloud with a subtle, yet clear, message.” —Booklist

“The bright collage images and lilting language bring the animals to life on the page.” —School Library Journal
