really liked it

Children will want to read this book over and over again. The words have a very catchy rhythm and a predictable pattern that children will love. Even children who cannot read will be able to read along throughout the entire book by looking at the pictures. The book starts with a brown bear, who sees a red bird, who sees a yellow duck, who sees a blue horse. Eventually, a goldfish sees a mother, who sees kids, who then repeat everything that was in the book.
The pictures are done in Eric Carle's classic collage style. All of the animals have very friendly faces, and are very easy to identify. Each animal is predominantly one solid color, or shades of one color. This makes it a perfect book for children who are learning their colors.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear is a perfect book to read to children in all situations. To make the book more interesting during a storytime session, it would be a good idea to use flannelboard pieces. The children will enjoy seeing the different animals displayed on the flannel board. When reading this book to an individual child, children will love the opportunity to pretend to read the book on their own when they gather the pattern of the story.
