Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr.

SummaryBrown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, written by Bill Martin, Jr. and illustrated by Eric Carle, uses colorful, simple illustrations to teach colors effectively to young children.  The large pictures look as if they could have been created with torn pieces of construction paper and other simple art materials.  My 2-year old son easily started repeating the colors to me and loved looking at the different animals.

Pros:  A fun method to reinforce learning colors.  Eye-catching illustrations.

Cons:  The blue horse and purple cat may be a bit confusing for children.  In some lights the red bird looks more pinkish, so could cause some confusion as well.

Age Range: Newborn to 7
