I started reading this to my daughter shortly after she was born. I found that making the animal sounds while reading engaged her attention, even as early as only a few months. Over time she began to pick up on the sounds and make them herself. She's 20 months now and we read this book "together" - I read the words, she makes the animal sounds. Sometimes I even catch her "reading" the book alone - flipping the pages and making the sounds for each animal. I have several other Carle books and am a huge fan of all of them!

I personally enjoyed this book as a child. The book is filled with bold colors and all sorts of animals. Its context is easy to read and understandable which helps the child follow the story and not become apathetic. Every page gives you a beautiful full size picture of an animal to look at and the intriguing feeling as to what animal will come up next. Because of the books rhythmical storyline it helps the child read along even if he or she cannot read yet. The books story is almost like a song. Not only will this book help your child follow a great story it will help them develop skills such as colors, shapes and names of animals. I would recommend this book to children of all ages especially beginners. They will enjoy this book every time.

I started reading this book to my 16 months old sun. He sits quietly through the entire book - looking at each page. We even read it a couple times making all the animals sounds. No other book I've read to him consistently keeps his interest. A must for early readers!! And for older kids I recommend the series of "Why Some Cats are Rascals"

This was THE first book my daughter really liked. Something about the big yet simple images on the page really drew her in. It was her favorite up to about 14 months of age. Now she is moving on, but it was the only one she liked!

My 9 month old loves this book! That's actually one of a few things hat calms her down when she's cranky. You have to pretest to make the animal noises and  your baby will absolutely love it!

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? was another Kohl's Cares book.  When I bought it for my son, I thought he'd like the illustrations, which he does.  That he also enjoys the text is a bonus. As a children's librarian, I was not a fan of highly repetitive books.  It is hard enough to hold the attention of twenty to thirty toddlers or preschooler without running the risk of potentially boring them.  As the mother of a budding reader, I do love some repetitive books.  My four-year-old reads this book right along with me and that is wonderful.  Eric Carle's artwork makes all the difference. Eric Carle's artwork, as I've said before, practically hums with life.  It is vibrant and engaging.  It is distinct and charming.  It is wonderful.

Highly recommended! My first grandchild loved it and anticipated the next page, which is the beginning of reading. Bought it for my next grandchild.

I'm surprised there are no ratings for this book. I'm a speech language pathologist and recently starting using this book during my therapy session with preschoolers. They love it. It's an easy read and since it repeats often, its provides children with an enjoyable learning experience. I don't have to keep telling them to "say this" or "say that". I also use Polar Bear, Polar Bear What do You Hear, which is a little more advanced than Brown Bear, but still fun.

This book is amazing. When I was a little girl I would have to ask my mom to read it to me every night, and I eventually memorized it to the point I could recite it back to her every night. This is the only book that sticks out in my memory and I'd have to say, it is a must have for young children! I'm now 15, and I still want this book to go nook version so I can get it and keep it forever =)

My 2 almost 3 year old absolutely loves this book we read it hundreds of times a day. She has it memerized and can "read" it upside down and with out looking. She loves to show off how good she can "read" this book. everywhere we go she repeats the book and for everyone and if we put it in th ewrong order she quickly reminds us we have done it wrong. It is a great way to help you child learn the concept of what is coming next, colors and animals. Absolutely a great book for any little one. She is always "reading" to her older siblings because they always get to read to her now it is her turn.

My child LOVES this book. We "sing" it all the time! It is great for learning colors.

My 16 month Grandson, Matthew loves this book. He says, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear and goes and gets me this book. Too cute. I'd recommend this to everyone.

My son would have me read this book to him every night, sometimes 3 times before he would fall asleep. He had it memorized, and would fool many of our relatives who thought he was really reading it. The book is a classic for small children.

Poetry Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is a book about a big brown bear that sees many things! Rhyming is the main point of the book. This book would be great for kindergarteners. The words, ¿Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?¿ is repeated before each new object is presented in the book. The illustrations are great and contain much detail. This would be a good book to read over and over to a group of children. Bill Martin Jr. is considered ¿America¿s favorite children¿s author.¿ He wrote for almost 60 years and wrote over 300 children¿s books. Martin Jr., Bill. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

A quick story that teaches animals, colors, and prediction. A great mentor book for young children to learn writing.

My children have always had an interest in Brown Bear, Brown Bear. They have always loved the bright colors even as infants. This is truly an educational book that teaches animals and color. This is a book well worth buying for your personal collection.

A classic read aloud favorite for the PK set. Bill Martin's text invites listener participation and little ones everywhere will enjoy predicting the next animal they will see. This book is great to act out and to combine with side projects involving animals. One of my all-time favorites.

As the reader turns the page, the brown bear sees a new animal. What animal is looking at you? This is a good book for naming colors and identifying animals. The book also has repetitive text allowing the child to predict what the book will say.
smmote on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book is written just like Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? It contains very good pictures of animals. Each page is repetitive and has an animal saying _____,_____ what do you see? The following page contains the animal and so on. This could help students identify animals and what they look like.

One of the most well known children books there is. It teaches little children about colors and animals, with wonderful art for each animal. The repetition of words and phrases gives the book a nice rhythm as well. A great book for younger children and an easy one for them to try to recreate for an art project.
bcbias on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book goes along with Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? It also talks about all these different animals but instead of learning about what all these different animals sound like, the students learn about what these animals look like. The authors descriptions give students a good idea of what they look like and it's fun to read after dicussing the "sight" sense.

This book will always have a great meaning. Eric Carle did a fantastic job at this book. The book is about a brown bear and it is looking for things. The book rhymes so this would be a great read alout to a young grade since they can look at the picture and see what to say. Chilren will always remember this book as they grow up because chances are they will read it tons of times before they grow up.

Bill Martin has figured out a fantastic, rhythmic formula, and it works. It works so well! We love his books.
bspentecost on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This picture book has all different kinds of animals. The book has a lot of repetition which makes this book good for kindergarten and 1st graders. The book also focuses on senses like hearing and seeing. I would use this book to help children learn to track print. I would try choral reading and really focus on some of the rhyming words. I might also do a picture walk with this book since the art work is so neat.

I get it, I get it, I get it. I really do. The constant repetitive nature of sounding out words and hearing them over and over will help your language skills. But my GOD - these books are boring. I mean - "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" was enough for me. But to think that Eric Carle took one good idea and hammered us with it until we are all blue in the face. One of the hundreds of these books is more than enough for a library. Why do I have six of them? I can't stand this book - even though I know it would be beneficial for my child. I'm glad I am no longer signed up with the Child_Lit listserv - or I might rant about this just like the guy did about the Caterpillar book!
