review 1: Young children on the cusp of reading and those even younger will enjoy this brightly illustrated cartoon book, portraying Patrick, a young bear. Visually stimulating pictures accompany short text. Accentuated words help parents emphasize their reading. The four stories cover topics familiar to young children: a nap, a picnic with Mom, a trip to the bakery and another nap. This book contains a helpful "How to Read" page coaching parents with tips on getting the most from the reading experience.
review 2: Award-winning graphic novelist Geoffrey Hayes introduces a new character for emerging readers with Patrick, a young cuddly bear cub. In these stories, Patrick enjoys a picnic with many attending adventures, wrestles with naptime, and confronts a bully. Using t
... morehe style he made popular in his Benny and Penny series, Hayes' panels, drawn with soft and warm colors, contain charming and expressive characters and settings, giving young readers plenty of visual clues. While the short, repetitive sentences and the creative and age appropriate vocabulary are perfect for emerging readers, the stories seem to be directed at a younger(preschool)audience. A recommended purchase for any library developing graphic novel collections for children. Endpapers offer tips for reading and using comics with children. less
