Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
I have always been a huge fan of Eric Carle’s illustrations before I even knew who he was. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a book I must have read 100s of times as a young child but it was only after my daughter was born did I meet Brown Bear. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Is a rhyming story written by Bill Martin Jr and introduces young children to a range of wonderfully colourful animals as the question “What do you see?” is asked to each in turn. This book provides a wonderful opportunity for parents and children to use different voices to portray the animals that live within Eric Carle’s illustrations. There is also an opportunity to learn about colours, as each animal is identifiied as such; Brown Bear, Purple Cat, White Dog and so on. Even more Brown Bear fun below.
This is clearly a popular story as my videos that use the Brown Bear character are amongst the most popular on my channel. There are a number of funny and educational videos on Bookworm Squirm and I would love you to have a watch and tell me what you think. Read below to learn more about Eric Carle and Bill Martin Jr.
