This story just shows the progression of a story and how it can expand from page to page. The illustrations are different but engaging. ( )

I read this years ago but now my niece who is two years old now reads it. I loved the story and the simplicity of the words it's a great book to read. ( )

Simple board book with colors and animals. ( )

This is a great book for kids to learn their colors. It also has repetition in it, which can help the kids "read" with you. ( )

This is a classic book from my childhood where you embark on an adventure to see lots of different animals and things found in nature. Brown Bear is a great novel for interaction in our classroom. Brown Bear is bet suited for primary readers.

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.
