Product Description

Review

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.

By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 Nov. 2003
Format: Hardcover
Wordsmith Bill Martin and artist Eric Carle are an unbeatable team. Much to the joy of parents and young readers this talented duo has joined forces once again - only their third collaboration in 35 years! It was worth the wait.
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.

My daughter loved Brown Bear, Brown Bear and Polar Bear, Polar Bear so when i saw this I had to get it. It surprised me a little; the other two books contained what I consider to be 'basic' animals, ones that are well known and popular. However here were animals like Macaroni Penguins and Water Buffalo, and the ending focussed on stating how they were wild and free. It was a pleasant surprise and I'm glad we have it!

I own the Brown Bear book from the same author, so I purchased this one as my little one really enjoys the large images from the Brown bear book. I didn't like this book at all as I found the animals a bit scary and so did the little one- it features a fish eagle, buffalo, red wolf and black panther among other animals, but the faces are quite scary, with sharp teeth and mean eyes. Won't recommend as it might create nightmares -my opinion.

By Dr. Bojan Tunguz TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 31 Aug. 2013
Format: Board book
Ever since a first-grade teacher friend of mine introduced us to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? we have been really excited and delighted with these seemingly simple and entertaining little books. We had gone over that book numerous times with our baby boy, and when he started approaching one year of age he *really* got interested in it. So we decided to take a look at some other books in the series, including this one.

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.

Clear, visually stimulating pictures and excellent patterned, rich text. It has a lovely momentum which makes it great to read aloud and is structured to encourage interaction. Lovely environmental message behind it but done subtly - it's not 'worthy'. :)

Format: Board book
Children love this book mand so do the parents or adults who read this book to their children. Bill Martin, Jr and Eric Carle the authors, have well thought out this book. Besides the beautiful, colorful illustrations, the storyline us one that each of us should read.

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.

The children enjoyed the visual aspects of this story, and attempted to remember the rhyme and vocabulary, however they struggled to remain interested with the audio book version and found it difficult to adapt their listening skills to different sounding voices/ accents.

We got this as part of the new Brown Bear Treasury, which comes with three other books in one (Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?, Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you hear?, and Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What do you see?) Which is great value and worth considering if you are looking at this one.

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.
