Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? by Bill Martin Jr

Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? [POLAR BEAR POLAR BEAR WH-BOARD]In Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?, written by Bill Martin Jr and illustrated by Eric Carle, the animals in the zoo hear different animals successively as you move along the book. At the end Zoo keeper hears all the children making animal sounds.  This book is in the same design as Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See.

Anna and I had read Brown Bear, Brown Bear earlier and enjoyed it and she was thrilled when we found Polar Bear, Polar Bear.  We had great fun talking about and making animal sounds while reading the book.

This would be a great book to use with a group of kids and have different kids take on the sound of different animals and participate in the reading of the book.  It's also a great addition to either a unit on animals or a unit on sounds.
