A rhythmic text and bold collage illustrations combine to introduce children to a variety of animals and colors in this classic book for the very young. The chant-like text ("Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see? I see a red bird looking at me. Red, Red Bird, what do you see? I see a yellow duck looking at me," and so on) practically begs to be read aloud while the lovely illustrations promote close observation with their bright colors and interesting textures. A staple in both the preschool classroom and the toddler's home library, BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR, WHAT DO YOU SEE? is the first book in a series which also includes POLAR BEAR, POLAR BEAR, WHAT DO YOU HEAR? and PANDA BEAR, PANDA BEAR, WHAT DO YOU SEE?
Eric Carle’s familiar illustrations of brown bear, red bird, yellow duck and the other endearing animals from his classic creation parade across the pages of this great interactive board book. As each page is turned, a new animal and its color are introduced, accompanied by Bill Martin’s singsong, rhyming question-and-response text to read aloud or listen to. There are sliding doors throughout the book, which children will just love to open, so they can discover what the next animal in this engaging story will be.
