Carle's books all have an educational element – they teach about animals, numbers, colours and nature – but a big part of their appeal is that they are not didactic or laboured, but light and entertaining. There's warmth and humour there too (Junior)
Eric Carle . . . has an unfailing magic. His gentle, glowing collages are satisfying for parent and child (The Times) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

With "Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What do You See?" children meet ten of the world's endangered animals - a bald eagle soaring , a water buffalo charging, a spider monkey swinging, a green sea turtle swimming, a macaroni penguin strutting, a sea lion splashing, a red wolf sneaking, a whooping crane flying, and a black panther strolling.
Each animal is portrayed in Eric Carle's inimitable eye catching collages, and the book closes with a portrait of a sleeping child dreaming that one day all animals will be wild and free.
An estimable hope; a book to be treasured.
The premise of this little book is more or same as that of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?: various animals are asked what they see, and they point to other animals. All the questions are posed as simple rhymes, and this is one of the main charms of this book. The illustrations are simple yet interesting, and kids will definitely find them fascinating. Unlike Brown Bear, Brown Bear, this book eschews some fanciful animal colors (like purple cat and blue horse), and sticks with the "real" animals. This book also features more exotic animals (the panda bear of course, as well as spider monkey, macaroni penguin, etc.) and challenges kids to learn about these uncommon creatures. In fact, it's the educational value of these books that I delight the most in.
I have not taken a look at the other versions of this book, but the board book is definitely well designed and immensely suitable for very young kids. Could not recommend it more.
As in their other books, the authors begin asking 'Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See'!, with each successive animal,we move on to another one. However, these animals are endangered, from the spider monkey to a penguin. The children will all fall in line, with the deductive lilt of the rhymes. The hopeful part of this book is one that children and adults will really like.

I must say that the illustrations in this one are my daughters and my favourite of the four books. Each has a background, which adds a sense of motion and setting which aids the imagination. These illustrations are wonderful for children; collages that a child may make at preschool but like perfect child collages that a child may want to aspire to and it encourages artist thought.
Like the other three books it is great for teaching about different animals and colours. You can also use the illustrations for identifying features such as eyes, nose, beak, horns, wings etc. Older children may be interested to know these are rare (endangered) animals that need to be protected, but this is a bit heavy for most children in the age range for the book (which I would say is 1 to 6 years old). Nevertheless it will make the parents reading it think about these animals and raise awareness which is also great.
