    Having the book available in a larger format than usual as well as the accompanying CD featuring actress Gwyneth Paltrow reading it aloud may charm many young readers. No matter the size of the book or the musical embellishments on the CD, this picture book will also have appeal because of the way each part of the story fits together with the others.

No matter the size of the book or the musical embellishments on the CD, this picture book will also have appeal because of the way each part of the story fits together with the others. Youngsters will enjoy trying to guess what Baby Bear and the other animals see, the description of each animal, the interesting artwork with all those colors and shades, and they will love the repetitive nature of the questions. It's hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't love sharing this with a youngster or any youngster who would not want to hear the book read aloud. Ideal for teaching children to love language, there is much to celebrate here, including the bond between a mother and her little one. The second version of this classic story that I recently read has a lift-the-tab format, and the book itself is quite small, perfect for the hands of a little one.

    Similar to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, almost to the point of direct repetition. But this one is slightly superior in that it has a more appealing trajectory, fewer fake animals, and far more words for children to learn.

    I love this collection of books. These are the books that keep young children interested and wanting to read. The children get to learn about different animals and different colors. This book teaches so many things to children. The illustrations are realistic yet not too scary for the children. I love it.

    This book is a sequel to the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?. In this story a baby bear is in search of finding it's mother. The baby bear meets many North American animals that appear along the way. Many of these animals are not familiar animals to younger students such as a blue heron or mule deer. I can see students wanting to research and learn more about these unfamiliar animals and it introduces new vocabulary to students. The descriptive words in the book enhance the imagery This book is a sequel to the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?. In this story a baby bear is in search of finding it's mother. The baby bear meets many North American animals that appear along the way. Many of these animals are not familiar animals to younger students such as a blue heron or mule deer. I can see students wanting to research and learn more about these unfamiliar animals and it introduces new vocabulary to students. The descriptive words in the book enhance the imagery of how these animals travel in their real habitats. At the end of the story, it recaps all of the animals shown in the book which is good in helping young readers with sequencing. Students will also love the text pattern of this book and I can picture making my class creating a class big-book using this text pattern and having students create new animals. Younger students love to read along in a story when they knew the words during shared reading. Eric Carle's illustrations are unique and beautiful as usual! It could also help young readers identify colors and color words!

    One more, please!

    We are big fans of Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See , so when we found this version with Baby Bear we knew we'd be in for a treat. This is cute and my kids enjoyed the different animals that Baby Bear sees along his journey.

    Pretty much a standard Eric Carl book. It provides a good list of a variety of animals and verbs.

As the book goes on, we see the perspectives of the different animals. Professional Recommendation/Review #1: Name of reviewer: Pat Trattles Name of Source: CLCD Link: http://www.clcd.com/#/bookdetail/1/0/... Short blurb: The award winning author/illustrator team of Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle does it again in this, the final installment of the classic bear books. Using the same repetitious refrain pattern originally introduced over forty years ago in Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, and echoed in succeeding books, Martin introduces readers to a variety of North American mammals as Baby Bear sets out on his quest to find his mother. Whereas in the original all the animals were looking at me, in this version Martin uses a variety of action words to describe the unique characteristics of each animal. Baby Bear sees a red fox slipping by, who sees a flying squirrel gliding by, who sees a mountain goat climbing near, etc. Carle s drawings are dramatic, yet simple and capture each animal in motion using bright colors against a bold white background. The repetitious nature of the text makes this a great book for children learning to read. Like the other bear books which proceeded it, it is sure to be enjoyed by parents, teachers, and children of all ages Professional Recommendation/Review #2: Name of reviewer: Unknown Name of Source: Kirkus Reviews Link: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-re... Short blurb: In its fourth—and billed as final—iteration, this primary level Q-and-A introduces ten North American mammals, from red fox and blue heron to rattlesnake, mule deer and finally (unspecified, but possibly Kodiak) Mama Bear. As always, Carle’s spread-filling painted-paper constructs capture a true sense of the animals’ looks, depicting each in a natural pose, gazing invitingly up at young viewers. As with its predecessors, the introduction of new material within a familiar, interactive structure makes a winning formula for keying new and pre-readers into colors, sequences and nature. Martin died in 2004—here’s a fitting close to what will likely remain his most lasting work for children. Response to Two Professional Reviews: Both reviews of the book were positive and referenced the other books in the popular series. It seems as though the author found a good formula for an intriguing book series. The illustrator did a fantastic job drawing the animals in a colorful and cheery fashion. I like how each page was a surprise and we got to find out what “baby bear” saw as he did. Evaluation of Literary Elements: This book was very simple and the repetitive nature of it could be helpful to new readers. Consideration of Instructional Application: I think one of the biggest draws of this book is the animals. I think that it would be fun to have my students draw or paint different animals. Also, since the book is repetitive like many songs, I could easily turn the book into a song.

 • I completely agree with the two reviews. I think that this book is captivating – no matter what age you are. The book has beautiful illustrations and large text. The animals are both illustrated, as well as textually described. It’s a great way to visualize and imagine the animals. 
Evaluation of Literary Elements: • Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See? includes beautiful illustrations. These illustrations perfectly capture the animals they are portraying. The visuals are large, but do not overwhelm the reader. The text is bold and simple, allowing the reader to focus on the illustrations. Consideration of Instructional Application: (3-4 sentences in your own words): 
 • A great and fun way to extend the mini-lesson would be to have the children draw their own animals, and describe the way that they move. I could put together all of the children’s drawings and descriptions and we can make a class book. It’s a great book to read if we were doing a unit on animals. It could also connect to a lesson about adjectives, because the children need to describe the animal.

    Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See? by B. Martin and E. Carle is a children’s picture book published in 2007. This book is intended for ages 2-8 and I rated it a 3 out of 5, also read as an ebook. This book follows animals through asking them what they see. At the end, a Mama Bear is united with her baby bear. The pages in the book are white except for the words and the illustration of an animal.

The author’s word choice is a great way to improve a child’s speech and reading skills. Our speech include articulation, reading this book with repeating words allows for the child to work on their mouth muscles. The illustrations also have texture to them. Although we can’t feel the book, we can see the dimensions in each of the animals. Adding texture to the animals makes up for the blank pages.

    This book is about a baby bear looking throughout nature and looking at different animals. Someone asks these animals what they see and the animal answers with another animal. this goes on until it reaches mama bear who sees her baby bear. This is a cute book. It is perfect or young kids beginning to read. It has short sentences and would be able to keep kids attention span.

    This book is describing all the animals and how they move in real life. Each animal is describing what they see and it gets you familiar with the different kinds of animals. The strengths with this story is that it shows all the animals and they're colors of their fur and how they move everywhere they go. I also like at the end of the story it has different quizzes for the kids to do to get them to comprehend to the story and understand it more.

    Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See? is a rhyming book about a baby bear looking for it's mother and seeing everything but. It could be a good book for very early readers during shared reading. They can 'read' the beginning of most pages following the books formula and the teachers reading of the last part of the page prior. While they are doing this they see the teacher following along left to right, top to bottom, turning pages, and using picture cues.

    I love this book. The kids will love the books because of the animals that were used. Also the kids will love this book because the animals are so very colorful. The author used animals that are very kid friendly. The book also follows the same pattern that would be easy for an early reader to understand. The cover has you fooled because you think you are going to read about bears but once you open the book the children will be pleasantly surprised when they see all the different animals.

    Classic Eric Carle illustrations combine with this great text for storytime for kids who are a little older than the Brown Bear, Brown Bear crowd. The illustrations are more subtly colored, evoking the natural coloration of the animals presented, and the animal actions described are more varied, and active instead of the passive "looking at me" from the original Brown Bear. I will be adding this to my Saturday storytime repertoire for sure.

    A succession of animals, beginning with a baby bear, are asked what they see. This book introduces young readers to animals native to North America. It features rhyming repetitive text, which allows small children to anticipate what will happen next and participate in the story, as well as Eric Carle's classic illustrations.

    This book follows the familiar pattern of the well known “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?”. It doesn’t really focus on colors like the original title though. This one introduces some lesser known (to young children) animals. Eric Carle illustrates again in his regular, recognizable style, which is always enjoyable. If you have a child who is a big fan of the original Brown Bear you’ll want to check this one out as well, but it’s not a must read by any stretch.

    This book is a wonderful little story by Bill Martin Jr. With illustrations by Eric Carle, the reader gets to enjoy the beautiful curiosity of a bear cub and mother bear. The fun rhythm of the story follows the bear and her cub seeing other animals. I loved the story, and absolutely loved the beautiful illustrations by Eric Carl that accompanied it!

    The genre for this book is fiction. This book does a great job in terms of illustrations and dialogue. The baby bear was moving through and meeting a bunch of new animals on the way. He eventually found hit mom at the end. I thought it was a wonderful story for new readers to use when they are first beginning to read!

    This was recommended as a possible read-aloud for a Camping storytime. I don't think I would have thought of it like that - but it's really perfect since all of the animals are North American animals that you might encounter or hear about while camping or exploring a park. Could also be used for bears or moms.

    Modern Fantasy K-3rd This story will be one that many of us can relate to, as baby bear is searching for something throughout the story. Because of the extent of baby bear's adventure, the reader is given an opportunity to interact with the many other animals that are encountered throughout the story.

    My 2 1/2-year-old enjoyed "reading" this to me, turning the pages and telling me the name of each animal. Some of them are a bit more obscure and challenging for a 2-year-old to name, but she still insisted on doing the reading for us with this one. There was a lot of, "What's that?!"

    This story is the must read sequel to the hit "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" The plot is a bit of a knockoff to the first one. The characters are equally developed. I would use it with kindergarten and below. Students could write and draw their own page to add to the story.

    This series is great for preschool read alouds. This one had a variety of animals in North America. Some of them were new to my international students, so I did some extra pictures and explanations. They recognized the mama from Brown Bear, Brown Bear...
