      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
