Summary

Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle are two of the most respected names in children's education and children's illustrations. This collaboration, Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?, their first since the classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (published decades ago and still a bestseller) shows two masters at their best.

What will you hear when you read this book to a preschool child?

Lots of noise!

Children will chant the rhythmic words. They'll make the sounds the animals make. And they'll pretend to be the zoo animals featured in the book-- look at the last page!

A Redbook Children's Picture Book Award winner

The rollicking companion to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 2-5. Twenty-five years after they collaborated on Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, Martin and Carle have created a new book based on animal sounds. With the same pattern used in Brown Bear, 10 zoo animals each hear another animal's distinctive vocalization until the walrus hears "a zookeeper whistling in my ear," and the zookeeper hears children making animal sounds--growling, roaring, braying.ÿ20.ÿ20. . Each colorful illustration of the animals in Carle's familiar style covers a double-page spread, facilitating use for read-alouds in groups. (Reviewed Nov. 15, 1991)0805017593Karen Hutt"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "It's been 25 years since these two talented men put their heads together, but the fruit of their latest collaboration is well worth the wait. Continuing in the spirit of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? , their new book incorporates the same clean design and crisp text, but this time the action takes place at the zoo, where elephants, hippos, lions and such are asked what they hear--each answer leads to the animal on the next page, and culminates with a zookeeper who ``hears'' a pageful of multiracial children disguised as their favorite animals. Carle's characteristically inventive, jewel-toned artwork forms a seamless succession of images that fairly leap off the pages, and educator Martin, ever tuned in to what children like best, has assembled a thoroughly rowdy menagerie--including a fluting flamingo, bellowing walrus and hissing boa constrictor, to name a few--imitations of whose sounds will doubtless soon be echoing in many homes and classrooms. A visually and aurally splashy work, this is a splendid successor to Brown Bear , one that no fan of that popular bruin will want to be without. Ages 2-4. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
