PreS-Gr 2-Tag Kissenbear introduces his teddy bear family and their seasonal activities in this eye-catching scrapbook. Colorful, detailed photographs depict the handmade stuffed bears spring cleaning, racing go-carts, trick-or-treating, and making snow sculptures. Each season is prefaced with a note by Tag, e.g., "I bet I could fill this whole scrapbook just with things I love about fall-jumping in piles of leaves, helping Mama bake her honey cake, going on hayrides." Daddy Bear adds a Halloween poem. The photographs have whimsical captions such as "This Halloween, I dressed as a giraffe. It took me a while to figure out how to walk in the costume!" The pages are adorned with fabric, buttons, and tiny toys. Stevenson's brilliantly clear pictures appear almost three-dimensional. Children will pore over the artfully arranged collages and be inspired to create family albums of their own.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada (c) Copyright 2010.
