This story is all about a variety of animals and what they see. It is intended to be an interactive young children's book. ( )

Great concept book that teaches kids about different colors and animals from the view of Brown Bear ( )

Poetry - Rhyme

This book is talking about the colors and uses a lot of repetition and assonance throughout which makes it easier for children to pick up on and following along with.

I think this is a great book to read to lower elementary students because it is very, very repetitive which makes it easy for the students to following along and be more interested in the book.

picture book

This book features a Brown Bear, a Red Bird, a Yellow Duck, a Blue Horse, a Green Frog, a Purple Cat, a White Dog, a Black Sheep, a Goldfish (Orange Fish), a school teacher, and children.

I like this book because it is a simple read for kids. It helps them while working on their colors. It also puts an animal with the color which helps them to better remember. The illustrations are also super cute in 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.
