Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle

When it comes to board books, it’s hard to go wrong with anything illustrated by Eric Carle. The bold colors and interesting textures seem to capture my son’s attention every time we pick up this book.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? has a great cadence, with the text following a simple pattern throughout the entire book. Each page depicts a brightly colored animal, and though Noah is too young to know his colors just yet, this book will be a fun teaching tool once he’s old enough to start learning them.

I find that my one-year-old has distinct preferences about books, even at this young age. With a great combination of animals, colors, and rhythm, this one is a winner every time we pick it up.
