Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-This contemporary classic loses nothing in its translation. Both text and illustration merge beautifully to captivate the attention of beginning readers. Carle's vibrant double-page collage illustrations fascinate, while Mlawer's translation retains the melodic quality of the original question-and-response text. The repetitive format of the book makes learning the names of the colors and animals an enjoyable experience. This fine-quality Spanish translation is an engagingly interactive read-aloud for both groups and one-on-one sharing.

Review

“The contemporary classic . . . perfect for sharing with a group of preschoolers.” ―The Horn Book Guide

“A picture book full of rhyme and repetition that will appeal to preschoolers. Carle's large collages bursting with color are perfect for the text.” ―Booklist

Bill Martin's "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" is an early childhood classic, and this Spanish translation maintains all of the qualities that make it a hit with younsters. The captivating illustrations soothe even the most rambunctious of tots. The lyric repetition of language make it a natural for developing Spanish literacy or communication skills.

Many reviewers are commenting that they don't use the word "pardo" for brown in Spanish, so I wanted to clarify this point. Yes, the commonly used word for the color brown here in the US is "café". The word "pardo" also means brown, but we don't typically use it in our daily spoken language. However, the translators appropriately chose to use this word, because the proper name in Spanish for a "brown bear" is "oso pardo." As in the animal--not the color. Check it out on Wikipedia: [...]. This is a great vocabulary-building lesson for our Spanish-speaking children!

As a bilingual kindergarten teacher I LOVE this book, and so do my kinders! After reading it, we always make a class book with photos: "Juan, Juan, ¿Quién ves ahí? Yo veo a Mariana mirandome a mí."

I was wary of this book, because the more common Spanish term for "brown" in Texas (where we live) is cafe' or el color cafe.' But my students and children didn't miss a beat. As I read it - and it is VERY lyrical and sweetly repetitious, just as the English version is - the children simply adopted "pardo" as another way to say brown. What a wonderful way to introduce the fact that much of learning a second language is not always 1 to 1 - meaning, there are OFTEN many words that can mean similar ideas in the target language.

All that said, in addition to Flip Flop Spanish, my students and children all enjoy reading this book again and again, and are even sounding it out on their own - a first for many of them. Great confidence builder!

we have the english version, which is a board book. my son loves the book. so we got it in spanish so i could read it to him (my husband talks to him in english and i talk to him in spanish). i was disappointed in the format. it's hard cover, with paper pages. plus it has a glossy paper cover over the hard cover. how is a toddler suppose to handle that?! so what i did was that i memorized the spanish version and use the english board book with him. so when i'm "reading" him the english board book, i'm reciting the memorized spanish version.

and i have one knock on the translation. pardo for brown? i've never heard that word. it's not in mexican spanish (i use cafe). our nanny is peruvian and she's never heard it either (she uses maron).

Recordaremos siempre al abuelo leer a su nieta este libro (en español) cuando ella era un bebé. Teniendo un libro en inglés y español es una gran manera de tender un puente sobre idiomas y las generaciones.

This book is the traditional 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear" except for in Spanish. Hard cover. Its perfect for Bilingual moms like myself, or anyone who wants to introduce the Spanish language in an easy format and fun platform. My children love it! I've purchased it for myself and as a gift.

My own grandchildren loved this book, and I read it so many times, I knew it by heart. I was glad to share with a little Mexican girl I know who knows her colors both in English and Spanish. Wish there was a bilingual version.
