Children’s Hour: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Children’s Hour is a feature posted every Thursday here at Lucybird’s Book Blog. Children’s Hour is my time for reviewing children’s picture books. In my job in a nursery I encounter lots of children’s books, and these are the books I use for Children’s Hour.

You can find links to past Children’s Hour posts here.

I’d love to hear everybody’s experiences of the books I review too, and feel free to post me a link to your own reviews, I’d love to make this a bit interactive.

The image (if you were wondering) is taken from Shirley’s Hughes’ Alfie and Annie-Rose books which I loved as a child.

What I like about Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? are the beautiful pictures. It’s a very simple book with each page containing similar words

“Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?

I see a Red Bird looking at me

Red Bird, Red Bird, what do you see?”

This creates a simple pattern which is easy for the children to follow, and makes it a good book for them to look at independently. They love naming the different animals, and it’s great for teaching colours too. It’s one I got for my niece in the past, and it was good to be able to show it to the kids at nursery too.

There is an interesting post on Eric Carle’s blog about how Brown Bear was made.
