Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—Lap book editions (8.5" × 11") of two of this creative team's classic titles. The simple, repetitive texts encourage toddler interaction, and the bold iconic images are perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing. The first title features 10 North American animals, while the second spotlights 10 endangered or threatened species. Carle's gorgeous painted and cut-paper collages are enormously appealing and engaging. --This text refers to an alternate Board book edition.

From Booklist

Forty years ago, Martin and a newcomer named Eric Carle launched a cottage industry with their now-beloved classic, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (1967). After narrowing the original book's broad purview in two sequels, Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? (1991), about zoo animals, and Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See? (2003), about endangered animals, this third sequel continues the thematic approach with an all-American assemblage and attention paid to the continent's many regions (a mountain goat, a rattlesnake, and a blue heron are among the creatures depicted). Martin's rhythmic text cleaves to the familiar pattern and leads readers from one double-page animal portrait to another, all crisply set against white backgrounds. Adults may appreciate the educational prospects of the North American angle, but the appeal here for the youngest children—as with the book's predecessors—will be in examining the complex, collaged textures within Carle's simple forms and in gleefully anticipating the appearance of each critter in the sequence.

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book for toddlers and older children. It has charming Eric Carle illustrations and covers a variety of North American animals such as skunks, deer, and prairie dogs. The amount of text is perfect to engage the interest of young children, while the North American animals capture the attention of older children. Highly recommended.

"Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See?" asks the title character and, more importantly, the young reader/listener what they see as they turn through the pages of this wonderful book. Like "Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?," this book is filled with brilliant, big and colorful pictures from Eric Carle. Bill Martin, Jr. focuses this story on North American animals, making it a bit more interesting for the kids and their parents here in the good ol' U.S. of A. I've actually seen a few of these animals in the wild thanks to the National Park system and a few trips around my home.

The text is familiar territory for parents and kids who've read other books by Martin, Jr. This wonderful rythmic writing makes it easy for kids to read and, even better, more fun to listen to. I highly recommend this book. It's fun for all ages.

My baby absolutely lights up with these pictures and the cadence of the story. I probably in retrospect would have bought the board book because she wants to eat the pages. (7 month old). Other than that she loves the book and the pictures.

This book was purchased for my three year old greatgrandson. When he came to see us the first thing he asked for was read Baby Bear. So I got him his own copy. He still loves it, as did his older cousin. She is four and I have a picture of her with her cousin on her lap reading (memory) Baby Bear to him. I think it maintains it's appeal for the older children (four years) because they can memorize it and feel like they are reading themselves. This is a great book for two to four year olds and appeals to both boys and girls.

I still love the original book in this series (Brown Bear) best for the cadence of prose and rainbow of characters, but Baby Bear is also a delightful book to have around. It's probably my second-favorite in the series. My daughter (9 mo) seems to pick it up more than most of her books (it's in about the 10th percentile). Though whether that's because she loves the animals or just the color yellow, I couldn't tell you.

I really like that the animals in this story are wild animals from my continent (though it does seem to be a bit more Western-focused than Eastern -- e.g. mule deer instead of white-tailed deer -- this surprised me as I know Eric Carle has his museum in Western Ma, so I was expecting the fauna to be more local, but it's no big deal, we'll just have to take our daughter to Yosemite some day). I also like the ending a lot, where the momma bear sees all the animals including her baby bear looking back at her. Very cute!

My only reservation about the book, if you can call it that, is that I can't seem to read it without feeling stilted. I think it's because of the frequent but not uniform use of the word "by" (e.g. "I see a striped skunk strutting by me." I keep thinking, "do they mean that the skunk is strutting past or strutting near?" The word is used on most of the pages, but not all, and it either feels as though it should be more thoroughly mixed up, or that it should be "by" in every instance.

Obviously, though, these are the ramblings of a mother and not of the target audience. She seems perfectly delighted with the characters in this story and their actions, be they "by," "near" or "at."

In summary: it's a cute book. You should get it for your baby, especially if you're trying to pass on a love of the great American outdoors.

My daughter loved Brown Bear, Brown Bear so we bought Polar Bear, Polar Bear and she LOVED that with all the animal noise so we bought Panda Bear, Panda Bear and she LOVED that so as the last installment in our Eric Carle collection, we purchased Baby Bear, Baby Bear. It wasn't available in board book like we have all the rest so we purchased it in hard book. Still it's GREAT. My daughter has been in love with these book she turned 1. She is now almost 4 and still loves these books. We have a great time at the zoo thanks to Eric Carle and his team because she can identify the majority of the animals. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Book is great for toddlers and younger. It is short enough to hold their attention as well as having colors that capture the eye. The title is repeated on every page and depending on the tone of the voice you use when you read, also hold the childs attention.. The thick pages of the book make it easy for the child to grasp and help turn the pages.

This book is of good quality but the shipping on it was slow. I ordered a set of books from a different company at the exact same time and the other books arrived in 5 days this was 2 weeks. I know that when I checked the status it hadn't left the warehouse for the longest time. It was very frustrating as far as the amount of time it took.
