What will you hear when you read this book to a preschool child?

Lots of noise!

Children will chant the rhythmic words. They'll make the sounds the animals make. And they'll pretend to be the zoo animals featured in the book-- look at the last page!

Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle are two of the most respected names in children's education and children's illustrations. This collaboration, their first since the classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (published more than thirty years ago and still a best-seller) shows two masters at their best.

A Redbook Children's Picture Book Award winner

The rollicking companion to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! This has been my son's favorite book for the last 4 months. He's 8.5 months now. He loves the pictures and most of all he loves how we make the animal noises. Everyone does it now, mommy, daddy, grandma, papa, grandad. We're not the best animal sound makers but he doesn't seem to mind! He also absolutly loved chewing on this book :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Book My 9 month old son likes this book. It has the same great rhymes and artwork as Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Given the choice between Brown Bear and Polar Bear, I'd have to go with Brown Bear. This book definately gets a thumbs up from us. :)
