Polar Bear Polar Bear What do you See, is another amazing rhythming book for young kiddos. The repetition and simple academic lessons throughout the book make it the perfect poetry book for young readers

This is one of my favorite books to use when teaching sequencing as well as animal sounds. This book goes through and names the animals as well as addresses the sound they make. If you have the version of the book I have it will also play the sound of the animal. ( )

Another well done Eric Carle board book. Again following a rhythmic pattern. I think children will love getting to see all of the animals and imitating their sounds. I think they would find this even more entertaining than Brown Bear Brown Bear. This will make for a fun read-aloud. ( )

I gave this pattern book a 5/5 because it shows repetition in words to begin to teach children how to read and teaches children sounds animals make. Each page has a new animal and says the animal twice and then is followed by, "what do you hear?" at this point the children are able to predict the next animal and practice the sound related to the animal. After a page or two children will begin repeating you, since you will be reading the same words often and they will recognize the pattern. ( )
