My 3 year old loves the Brown Bear Book, his had been damaged so I replaced it with the set. The other two books are OK, not as good as Brown Bear but he still likes them. The best thing about Brown Bear is he thinks he can actually "READ" it, which adds to his self esteem and helps him develop a joy for books.

The 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See' book was recommended to me by both my 4 year old daughter's speech therapist and her teacher. In town just this book alone was priced at 7.95. I found the set here on Amazon.com and the price was just too good to pass up! All three of these books are great for helping teach proper sentence structure and pronoun usage with I and you. Brown Bear features colors, Polar Bear works on animal sounds and 'what do you hear?', and Panda Bear is 'what do you see' again with more specific animal names like a green sea turtle and a spider monkey. The art is timeless and the repetitive sentence structure enables your toddler or preschooler to read with you, making them fun as well as educational. While I initially bought this to help with some of my daughter's PDD challenges, since then these books have also been read to my 2 year old and she loves them too! I definitely recommend picking up this set!

As an educator, school librarian, mom and now grandmother, this is a perfect set to introduce those little minds, hands, eyes and ears to reading and books. Regardless of which title is the favorite from this set, your little one will love them. This makes a wonderful baby gift!!! Read to the babies...you will see how much they grow.........

These books are great! I have been reading them to my son since he was just a few months old. Now, at almost 12 months, he really gets a kick out of turning the pages (nice and sturdy)and laughing when I make the animal noises. The only problem is that I don't know what many of the more "exotic" animals sound like!

The Panda Bear Panda Bear book has a missing page where the Green Sea Turtle picture ought to have been.

So the page before it reads "Spider Monkey, Spider Monkey, what do you see? I see a green sea turtle swimming by me." then instead of asking the Green Sea Turtle what it sees and naming the next animal, the following page reads "Macaroni Penguin, Macaroni Penguin what do you see?"

The sea turtle should definitely have been pictured since it is on the list of animals on the very last page. I am surprised none of the other reviewers mentioned this publishing defect, since it was so patently obvious to me on my first flip through. What's worse, the publisher didn't catch it and you would think they could at least proof read this once. So utterly disappointing.

I think our 18 month old loves to play with the box more than sit with us and read the books. lol. I think it may be a little too repetitive and too many pages when reading more than one of these titles, right after the other, as she gets quickly bored with it and runs off with the box this 3 book set comes in. She may get more interested as she gets older though, when she gains more patience and learns more animals... as she always stops us on the "Cat" page, or "Bird" page, to point and say what they are. Otherwise, a simple, pretty fast read.

She really loves That's Not My Kitten (Usborne Touchy Feely) and That's Not My Bunny: Its Tail Is Too Fluffy (Usborne Touchy Feely) books. Like I said, it may just be her age.

I have often pondered the question, sitting on the balcony of my grand estate, of what animals see. I hear tell of cats' unique attention to movement, dogs' colorblindness, and some insects' ability to "see" things neither you nor I can comprehend. Of great coincidence, this book was left setting upon the balcony's solid-oak gateleg, and so I pondered along with Mr. William I. Martin, II, of Hiawatha: "what DO you see, brown bear?" The bear's responses are enlightening and reflective of a far greater intellect than I would have previously attributed to such a beastly creature. I now hope that I shall have the good fortune of meeting one of these magnificent beings in close quarters, so that I may discuss with it more rigorously the complexities of its visual perception. I will also refrain from donning the white-and-black bear skin coat brought to me by my cousin, Lord James T. Brewster, from the far reaches of our wide empire. I do not blame my cousin for procuring this object for me, as he was unaware of the high level of functioning engaged in by these reflective beings. But with this book I will spread the word of enlightenment.

I heartily recommend this purchase to anyone with an interest in stepping outside of themselves and coming to an understanding of the wider world around us.

The repetitive nature of these books makes it easy for a toddler to enjoy, and even memorize! She loves this book set!
