PreS-K-Two pandas live next door to each other, with a fence between them. Panda would love to meet his neighbor, but he's too shy. Likewise, Pandora is too timid to make the first move. Winter comes, snow covers everything, and both of them stay indoors. When they start to realize that they haven't seen each other for quite a while, they work up the nerve to go outside and look for the other, colliding between their houses. "Two little pandas,/Close together,/Agreed to be friends./Forever and ever." The illustrations are done in watercolor and ink; they show the change of season well, and a couple of scenes include a parent watching from the window. This sweet story could give a gentle push to shy youngsters.-Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MI (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
