Brown Bear Bookmaking
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is a children’s picture book published in 1967 by Henry Holt and Company, Inc. Written and illustrated by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle, the book is designed to help toddlers associate colors and meanings to objects. The book has been widely praised by parents and teachers and placed on several recognition lists. The plot consists of the narrator asking various animals and people what they see. Their response is an observation of another animal or person, which again prompts the initial question, “What Do You See?” This process creates a rhythmic pattern that is consistent throughout the book. The 1984 edition begins with a Brown Bear, then features a Red Bird, a Yellow Duck, a Blue Horse, a Green Frog, a Purple Cat, a White Dog, a Black Sheep, a Goldfish, a school teacher, and lastly, children.
