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.

    Comments about Brown Bear:

    Great for early speech. Was recommended by speech pathologist to help teach my son to say "I" instead of "me" at beginning of sentences.

      Love this board book for my one year old Grandson. Would have preferred it be a bit larger as only a small size.

          Comments about Brown Bear:

          I have read this book to my son since he was 1 week old. Even at that age his eyes would pop open looking at the pages.

          Each page has a picture of ONE animal, painted in ONE colour (though textured for interest). So even a newborn can see SOMEthing.

          As you continue reading it, the child associates each image with the creature, and the colour. So they learn about animals, and they learn colours.

          Now my son is 4 years old and "reads" the book to his baby sister.

          She is currently in the process of mangling the book... but it's ok, I have a spare! Wouldn't be without it.

                My 2 year old loves animals and is grappling with his colours so this book is perfect for him right now.

                  I read this book to my son everyday he reads it twice himself and within one day had the whole book mesmerised at two and a half! Excellent book for keeping them occupied on toilet for training and easy to keep clean as a hard cover. Very good story and the rhyming makes it easier for them to learn and understand. A must for ur library

                  To celebrate this beloved book's 25th birthday, Eric Carle has energized his original artwork, providing bold, fresh colors and his now familiar menagerie. Publishers Weekly
