A panda named Beckett feels hungry. On his journey to acquire some bamboo (that's what pandas eat, you know!) he unknowingly gathers a panda following. One bamboo tree and fifteen pandas don't seem like good odds.
What I thought: A cute book! Pandas are so likable. Kids will love counting all the pandas. The illustrations are lovely--soft colors and lines. My favorite is panda-monium. I'm looking forward to using this book for my China & Japan story time this summer.
Story Time Themes: Numbers, Pandas, Bears, China.
