This book brings back fond memories of kindergarten and first grade for me. We love the colors of Eric Carle's pictures and my daughter loves making animal noises as we discover the animals!

By the age of 5 all of my children have had Brown Bear memorized. It is a fun book for older children to introduce to younger children. Helps learn the colors and animals. Illustrations are wonderful.

Great for the first stages of teaching colors and animals. This isn't one of our favorites, but we grab it occasionally.

Loves it. We now use the back page to memorize and recite each animal. (some of the books don't have this extra page where it shows all the animals)

A perfect book for little ones! The patterned text is perfect for beginning reading skills. The use of color words and animals helps kids to be involved in the process of reading at an early age!

One of my favorites growing up and now one of my daughters. The newer books have a window you slide (peekaboo) makes it even funner for the child.
