Format: Board book
Ever since a first-grade teacher friend of mine introduced us to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? we have been really excited and delighted with these seemingly simple and entertaining little books. We had gone over that book numerous times with our baby boy, and when he started approaching one year of age he *really* got interested in it. So we decided to take a look at some other books in the series, including this one.

The premise of this little book is similar that of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?: various animals are asked what they hear, and they point to other animals. All the questions are posed as simple rhymes, and this is one of the main charms of this book. The illustrations are simple yet interesting, and kids will definitely find them fascinating. Unlike Brown Bear, Brown Bear, this book eschews some fanciful animal colors (like purple cat and blue horse), and sticks with the "real" animals. This book also features some more exotic animals (like the boa constrictor) and challenges kids to learn about the creatures one can probably only see at the zoo. The book also teaches about animal sounds, something that even most adults are not too familiar with. In fact, it's the educational value of these books that I delight the most in.

I have not taken a look at the other versions of this book, but the board book is definitely well designed and immensely suitable for very young kids. Could not recommend it more.

Another cute book in the series "Brown Bear". This one is a bit different as it teaches the animal sounds for kids for some animals that you normally wouldn't teach sounds for (not the traditional "oink oink" for a pig, etc!).

My 18-month old daughter can't get enough of this book! I read Brown Bear, Polar Bear, and Panda Bear in a row, and she's fascinated. She likes turning the pages herself, and the text is simple enough that she can turn pages quickly! She also enjoys pointing out the ears, eyes, noses and mouths on each animal.

A few weeks ago, my 13 month old son came home from daycare with this note on his daily sheet "Today we read Polar Bear, Polar, What Do You Hear over and over again. Everytime I tried to read him another book, he would push it away and point to Polar Bear". Every day since this, his daily sheet has ended with "...and we read Polar Bear" My son has favorite books at home and since he enjoys this one so much, I wanted to add it to our collection. I also ordered the Brown Bear and Panda Bear books, hoping he will like them just as much.

Format: Board book
This is a fun interactive book about the animals in the zoo and the sounds they make. It's a great vocabulary builder, since it uses words that small kids may not hear every day. The book is quite enjoyable for kids who like animals, and not at all scary. The story may get kids wound up, however, so it might not be the best choice for a bedtime story. The book has about 200 words.

I just got this book for my 2-year-old nephew, Zachary, because he loves the book "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" by the same people. He asked me to read it to him four times in a row because he loved it so much! He likes it because it uses zoo animals that he loves, like hippos, walruses, zabras, elephants, flamingos, peacocks, polar bears, leopards, and a boa constrictor! (well, I say "snake" when I get to that part because that's how he knows it). The rythm is just like Brown Bear, and he loves it! I recommend it to all young children because it is a fun book.

I bought this book for my 20-month-old daughter a few days ago because she was ready for some new books and really liked Brown Bear, Brown Bear. Well, we've read it about 15 times each day since then. She even took it to bed with her. The pictures are beautiful and it introduces some new animals that we haven't normally talked about. I would definitely recommend it.

When I first started buying children's books for my twins, I was doing it more for me than for them since I knew I'd be the one re-reading it all the time. This was a fantastic book that everyone in my family really enjoys. My girls love to hear the animal sounds as I read about the zoo animals & they love looking at Eric Carle's brilliant illustrations. It also keeps their attention, which trust me, isn't easy at 10 months old. I have a feeling that this will be a treasured book for years to come.
