"This text develops a well organized sequence for young learners to catch on quickly. It is interactive in the way that children are able to recite the sounds that animals way. The text can be decomposed as the teacher stretches and points to each sound that an animal is making. This strategy places an emphasis on vowel sounds, constant sounds, and blends while providing a visual to young learners. The text is simple enough to place an emphasis on the sounds, rather than the complexities of a story line. It is also a great text for memory recall as students reflect on which animal came next in the sequence and what type of sound that animal made." said.

"Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle are two of the best children authors ever. This book talked about colors and different animals. It reminds me of visiting zoo Atlanta. However, do to the sounds that the animal makes, the children will be able to match picture with sound. about the sounds that different animals make. The children as well will learn about patterning and sequencing from brown bear brown bear.This could be use on use animal life, colors, or the five senses.

LEARNING EXPERIENCE: The teacher can gather a series of picture clips or animal sound clips and have the children match them to what animals makes that sound. When the child recognizes the sound they would say what they have heard and the teacher will reveal the picture of the animal that is correct from the student.

"Review: I like reading this book because I love the illustration in the book which is Eric Carle I love how in my eyes the pictures could be consider three d in my eyes. And if you ready the book like how it is suppose to be read how many different sounds each animals makes as you hear them. My niece enjoy when I made the sounds as I asked what do you hear.


Learning Experience: The learning experience would be us picking a topic on a animal which polar would be out animal. I would ask the class first what is a polar bear and what do they look like even thought our topic would be on polar bear we would spend a great deal learning about their habitats an where they come from. After they grasp that knowledge I would read this book as a guide for all animals than as a class we would act out the book once they master what a polar bear really is.

""Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?" is a great book to use when teaching a child color concepts. There are multiple activities that can be done using this book, it could be used to teach children about different animals as well. Because of the way the book is written, it is easy for children to catch on and read along with the teacher, it's also easy to remember.

"Synopsis: "A new edition of this all-time favorite children’s tale to delight children and parents alike. Bill Martin’s playful story introduces a parade of rowdy zoo animals, all illustrated in Eric Carle’s instantly recognisable, clean, crisp style. A perfect addition to this fun, noisy tale is a ten button sound panel. As each new animal appears on the bright, colorful pages, children will love to find, then press the right button to hear the noises that the braying zebra, roaring lion, fluting flamingo and other amazing animals make."

My Review: This is a very fun story for little ones. The simple lines are similar to Brown Bear Brown Bear only with sounds instead of colors. We have the one that has the sound buttons for each animal. I can imagine this would be a difficult book if you can't make the animal noises or to try to explain the sound to little ones so I really encourage getting the one with sounds. Munchkin absolutely loves this book and all the animal sounds, he now wants to go back to the zoo to visit the animals he hears.
