A big happy frog, a plump purple cat, a handsome blue horse, and a soft yellow duck--all parade across the pages of this delightful book. Children will immediately respond to Eric Carle's flat, boldly colored collages. Combined with Bill Martin's singsong text, they create unforgettable images of these endearing animals.

A rhyming book where each page has a different animal chiming in to ask what the next animal will be.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See is a great story for early childhood, early elementary aged students who are learning about color and animals. It's full of repetition and rhyming, so children can easily predict and follow along with the story. ( )

I enjoyed this book very much as a child and continue to as a young adult. One reason why I really enjoy this children’s book is because the continuous repetition throughout the story. The rhymes are catchy and easy for kids to memorize. For example, throughout the book each animal state “What do you see? I see a ‘blank’ looking at me.” The structure of this book is also a good tool for student predictions. A fun way to engage the students is to have them guess what animal will be seen next. Another aspect of this book I really enjoy are the large and colorful illustrations. The book could be a reference when teaching animals and colors. For example, in the story the author write “Brown bear, brown bear what do you see? I see a yellow duck looking at me.” The story is very simple but also very engaging to students. Overall, I believe this book would be a great addition to a classroom. ( )

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. (Baby to Preschool) --Emilie Coulter
