Author Info
Eric Carle
American-born Eric Carle and his German-born parents moved to Germany in 1935. The transition from life in American to life in Germany was not an easy one for Carle to make. His school days were unpleasant, except for the encouragement he received in his art classes. In 1952, at age 22, Carle returned to the United States. He soon began working for the New York Times and remained there until he was drafted into the U.S. Army, which sent him back to Germany. After his discharge he returned to the U.S., this time with a wife, Dorothy. He illustrated his first book for children, Bill Martin's BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR, WHAT DO YOU SEE? in 1967. Carle is best known for his "Very" series, which he writes and illustrates. The series began in 1969 with THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR and apparently concludes with 1995's THE VERY LONELY FIREFLY. In 2003 he was honored by the American Library Association with their Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which recognizes creators of children's books whose body of work represents a significant contribution to the field of children's literature.

Annotation A rhythmic text and bold collage illustrations combine to introduce children to a variety of animals and colors in this classic book for the very young. The chant-like text ("Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see? I see a red bird looking at me. Red, Red Bird, what do you see? I see a yellow duck looking at me," and so on) practically begs to be read aloud while the lovely illustrations promote close observation with their bright colors and interesting textures. A staple in both the preschool classroom and the toddler's home library, BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR, WHAT DO YOU SEE? is the first book in a series which also includes POLAR BEAR, POLAR BEAR, WHAT DO YOU HEAR? and PANDA BEAR, PANDA BEAR, WHAT DO YOU SEE?
