Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? has all the characteristics of a marvelous picture book. The rhythmic tone of this wonderful book has been delighting young audiences since 1996 and is truly a must read for all children.
The tissue paper used to create the delicate images adds an artistic element to this book that both children and adults will enjoy. The tissue paper creates rich colors and textures that make the characters vibrant and alive. However, the story gets it’s warmth from the innocent expression of the Brown Bear. The wide eyes and soft gaze of the Brown Bear will remind adult readers of their own child hood and the magic they saw in the world around them.
