Reviews for Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Spring
Teachers and emerging readers have already made Bill Martin's books their own, but these new editions are intended to cement the deal--and extend the brand. The trim size is smaller, and the text is placed uniformly across the bottom of each page and broken into short phrases. Back matter includes a letter to parents and teachers and further reading activities.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 1997
The contemporary classic, beloved of preschoolers and beginning readers alike, loses nothing in its translation to a board book. Carle's bold, brilliantly colored animals against a white background are still striking, and the simple text is large enough and in a clean enough typeface to be quite readable.

PreS-Gr 1-- In this new edition of the popular classic (Holt, 1983), the same clean design and crisp text remain. Illustrations, however, have been slightly altered. Stronger colors and more texture help delineate animal bodies more sharply. Positions and shapes are slightly changed, resulting in a less static look. Red Bird is shown in flying position with a sleeker body, sharper beak, and more carefully defined tail and wing features. Yellow Duck has webbed feet and an open bill; Blue Horse has black hooves and teeth showing; Green Frog a spotted back and pink tongue; the former Mother with pale pink skin has become Teacher with beige skin tones and darker hair. The overall effect is livelier and more interesting, although changes are minimal enough that the old edition is still serviceable. When replacements are in order, this will be a welcome addition. --Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY Copyright 1992 Cahners Business Information.
