* Note: if you click through the links in this post to Amazon.com, you will see that these books are not currently available there. This is due to the standoff between Amazon and publisher MacMillan over the price of Kindle books, which has resulted in Amazon pulling books from their store. Hopefully this will be resolved shortly.
Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? (Board book), by Bill Martin Jr.. Bill Martin Jr. / Eric Carle take on animal sounds in this fun companion to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
"Hippopotamus, Hippopotamus, what do you hear? / I hear a flamingo fluting in my ear."
Bookworm's interest at 2 years, 2 months: He loves it, especially the last page, which summarizes all of the previously introduced animals.
Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See? (Board book), by Bill Jr Martin. A baby bear begins the pattern in this one, and the last animal in the chain is a Mama Bear. Unlike "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See," this book does not focus on color.
"Striped Skunk, Striped Skunk, what do you see? / I see a mule deer running by me."
Bookworm's interest at 2 years, 2 months: He loves this one too. I'm debating whether to pick up copies of this one and "Polar Bear, Polar Bear," because he really enjoys them.
