I really like this book, mostly for its amazing illustrations. It is a great book to learn colors and animals, while also enjoying a story. The writing is clear, and the plot flows really well. The illustrations are really what make this such a great story. The colors are so vibrant, especially the purple. This is a great book to get kids thinking about colors. ( )

This book is a very fun and interactive book like most books that Eric Carle is involved in. The pictures are exciting and this book introduces different animals. The language in the book is repetitive which is excellent for emerging readers because it encourages them to read along and read out loud as a class. ( )

A classic read for young children. Full of repetition to encourage participation in a read-aloud and to scaffold early literacy. Loved by my children and great fun to make animal noises in addition to reading the text. I often have my children guess the animal that comes next.

This is a great book to teach a sequence of events.I could use a story board to help demonstrate the sequence of events of a this book. This book has a lot of repetition which helps young readers learn how to read easier. ( )

Interesting content. This repetitive rhyming scheme is great a great tool to use for teaching toddlers colors while introducing them to animals. Even adults will find this book to be a treat to read. The cadence of language will instantly draw young readers to this book. ( )

Book description
Brown Bear is one of all-time favorite stories to share with children. There is so many variations to present this book to children. I like to do the flannel board version and have the children bring an animal to the board as we read. I also like to sing it with the CD and then have the children sing it with me without the music. This book helps children identify animals and colors. Children love to hear this story at least once a week. Additionally the rhythmic tone and repetition is very soothing to young children. I think this is an excellent pre-school book that a teacher can use to increase language and pre-literacy skills.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805047905, Board book)

The gentle rhyming and gorgeous, tissue-paper collage illustrations in this classic picture book make it a dog-eared favorite on many children's bookshelves. On each page, we meet a new animal who nudges us onward to discover which creature will show up next: "Blue Horse, Blue Horse, What do you see? I see a green frog looking at me." This pattern is repeated over and over, until the pre-reader can chime in with the reader, easily predicting the next rhyme. One thing readers might not predict, however, is just what kinds of funny characters will make an appearance at the denouement! Children on the verge of reading learn best with plenty of identifiable images and rhythmic repetition. Eric Carle's good-humored style and colorful, bold illustrations (like those in The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Grouchy Ladybug, and Have You Seen My Cat?) have earned him a prominent place in the children's book hall of fame.
