A big happy frog, a plump purple cat, a handsome blue horse, and a soft yellow duck-- all parade across the pages of this delightful book. Children will immediately respond to Eric Carle's flat, boldly colored collages. Combined with Bill Martin's singsong text, they create unforgettable images of these endearing animals.

This classic children's book has been teaching children animals and colors for more than 25 years. This version is a small size with board pages - ideal for tiny hands. The collage pictures consist of bright colors that pop off the white pages, helping your child easily focus on what's being described. Although the animals are common and recognizable, a few of them come in new colors that will inspire your little one's imagination. Have they ever seen a purple cat and a blue horse? Each set of pages has repetition and rhyming, creating a sing-song cadence that will help your child learn quickly and be able to join in. Brown Bear also encourages association, as you have to turn the page to see each animal after it is first mentioned.

The pictures have a textured look to them, encouraging touch and keeping readers engaged. You can practice identifying the animals or colors by repeating them aloud and pointing together. A fun addition is to ask what sounds each animal makes. The cadence and repetition may even help lull your little one to sleep, dreaming of colors and animals.

When I read this book to my friend, Dano, when he was an infant, he moved his head long with the beat of the cadence and wanted to touch each page. We spent a long time on the final page, where all the animals are displayed, going through each animal. He liked to point at them and had me name what they were. This was a great repeat book as he learned to identify each color and animal on his own.

We are expecting a new baby and I thought this would be a great book for our boys to read to the baby. The size of the book makes it so baby can easily hold them as they grow and flip through the pages themselves.
