Children Ages 4-6 • 12 min. • Unabridged • © 1967

Children love the predictability of this story of one colorful animal who is looking at another . . . who is looking at another . . . From the images adorning the CD itself to the engaging background music to the three distinct narrations, including one in Spanish, this is a production to savor. Gwyneth Paltrow gently personalizes each animal with pauses and emphasis, and a chorus of children provides a variety of additional voices. Bill Martin, Jr., himself also reads his story with a rich, even voice that makes the repetition pop. The Spanish version is perky and enunciated carefully. Youngsters can pore over Eric Carle's beloved illustrations while listening. A.R. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2009]
