    Brown bear is a story that has been around for ages but it is still a classic. The rhyme scheme of the story is very catching. It teaches color as well as animals. The book is uniquely illustated. I would recommend this book for children PreK-K.

    This is a good book for younger audiences, maybe kindergarten. There are many animals and the author is asking them all what they see and they respond with the next animal - this makes it predictable.

    A brown bear tells what he sees. He sees a red bird looking at him. All the way from a brown bear to a group of children. All of the children describe the colors and the animals that they see.

    This is a great book for younger students and I have enjoyed reading this book for many years. The main idea of this story is to show different animals and what they see. I liked the story because it can teach young students different colors and animals. I am also a huge fan of the illustrations in the story. Although the book's story line does not stray from naming animals and colors, the repetitious pattern keeps children of young ages engaged and wondering what is going to come next. All in all, this book is a timeless classic and a read that children will remember for years to come.

    Brow Bear Brown Bear What do you see was written by Bill Martin Jr. and illustrated by Eric Carle. It was published in 1996 by Henry Holt and Co. This book is about all different animals and does a good job pulling the reader in by asking questions. This book would be a great book to read to little ones because the reader can ask the child the questions and get the child to answer. This book even promotes language and cognitive development. Another great part of the book is the illustrations. The illustrations are by the well known illustrator Eric Carle and are fun and interesting to look at. They are the perfect touch for the book. When I read this book to the little girl I babysit she asked me to read it over and over again to her. Once I had read the book to her a few times she had basically memorized what each page said and started reading it to me. I think this says a lot about the book and how great it is. I strongly recommend reading this book.

    I think this book is easy to follow and the text flows well. The pictures are beautiful and colorful. I think a small child such as a toddler or preschooler would be able to follow the story.

    There are three reasons I like "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" First, the illustrations in the book allow young students who are learning how to read visualize the words they are saying. For example, along with "Red Bird, Red Bird, What do you see?" there is a red bird to show the students what they look like. Second, the writing and language in the book is simple, making it easy for young students to understand. "I see a yellow duck looking at me." This is a simple response that students can easily understand. Third, the book pushes readers to think more about the animals in the book. For example, they are able to think about the sounds of bears, birds, ducks, and horses. The big idea of this story is for students to notice patterns while they are reading.

    Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? has quickly become a classic for younger children. The rhythm of the book as it is read makes it fun to read and follow along with. This story allows the reader to identify a variety of animals and their colors. The pictures and simplicity of it make it easy to identify animals on each page. The book would be great in a kindergarten classroom to help students use the illustrations to tell about a story.

    Brown Bear, Brown Bear is a cute book that is great for the classroom. I remember reading this book as kid. The pictures are great and really pop on the white background. The book is an easy concept book that rhymes and has the big idea of learning colors. The book is repetitive and fun for young kids to read aloud and learn from.

    This is a great book for younger children! It has many descriptive words and addresses rhyme, repetition, and colors. The illustrations are beautiful and has slide and find slots for children to open which is very fun!
  • (5/5)
    This book teaches descriptive words for animals and is fun because of its repetitive pattern. I would read this book to elementary children to teach colors and how to be descriptive..
  • (5/5)
    Not only teaches about colors but also animals. Different perspectives
  • (4/5)
    This book is very enjoyable for young children and it is a classic book that every child should read. The author basically introduces different animals to the reader. The pictures were great in this book because they were vibrant and each animal was clearly depicted. In addition, the animals were very realistic looking. The writing was very repetitive in this book and there was a lot of rhyming. "Brown bear brown bear what do you see? I see a red bird looking at me." This is a goo book for beginning readers and the author was very successful with the creation of this book.

    this book helped me learn to read, taught me animals and colors
  • (5/5)
    This is one of those classic stories that should be on every teachers bookshelf. I love this story and have been reading it since I can remember. It not only teachers children animals, but it also sneakily teaches children about the importance of colors and repetition. By the end of the book the children could be saying the words right along with you. I like how the colors of the different animals is unusual so it captures the readers attention as well. This story is unique because the repetition also helps the readers get comfortable with words and the way words sound.
