My husband HATES this book and refuses to read it to our daughter. She seems to be okay with hearing it, though. I don't care one way or another.
This book was identical in structure to Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?, also by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle. Carle's colorful, distinct artwork accompanies a simple, repetitive question-response format that my little guy really loves. The only trick was getting him to say "see" instead of "hear" like he did in the other book. As before also, I wasn't terribly into it, but he was, and that's the important thing with these stories. To see him get invol ...more
And isn’t that what we want with children’s books, for them to leave a positive lasting impression?
In the classroom this would be great for early learners. I'd use this in a read aloud for kindergarteners or first graders. The use of animals will engage the students and could be a perfect opportuni ...more

This book is so cute. I've read many books like this before and i think they are really fun and I've noticed young kids and students really enjoy them.
For young students this is a book they can have in their centers area and pick up to read on their own. The words are simple and repetitive. It's also a great book to introduce conversations to students. Each animal is conversing about what they see and so students can recognize that and have a conversation with one of their class ...more

Children usually like Eric Carle's creations, so I'll recommend one be in each classroom of young children as well as home.
Bill Martin Jr.
He was an educator publishing executive and author of more than 300 children's books. He did not learn to read until he was in college. His writing process is him talking he talks a story through many times to see if he is saying what he means. Brown Bear was sort of a watershed for hi ...more
Yes, endangered species are an important issue, and raising the issue with young kids is important. But. You can't help but think that this was merely a money-grab. If this were truely about endangered species where is the note stating that "100% of the profits from this book will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund". And if they were really serious "this book was printed on ...more

A dreaming child sees all kinds of endangered animals.
I love Eric Carle’s books since they are always so cute and almost fun, even now, even though I am an adult. Though, this one of the first ones that I have read where he works with another author. However, this time, instead of Eric Carle of writing this book ...more

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?
I see a Red Bird looking at me.
Charming right? Lyrical, easy to read, fun for children to listen to.
Now try this:
Macaroni Penguin, Macaroni Penguin, what do you see?
I see a sea lion splashing by me.
The irony of children's books is that the better they are, the better they have to be, because you will need to read it aloud thousands of times.
Some books are a pleasure to read, even for the 868th time, including the original Brown Bear. T ...more
