Favorite Reads for the Kiddo: Brown Bear, Brown Bear

Chloe's favorite 'toy' is probably her collection of books. Most of them are packed away for the next few weeks. I really cannot wait to get Chloe settled back into a functioning household. She's been a real trooper while I spend my days packing up the house. It must be so boring for her. Luckily she entertains herself quite well.

Back to the topic. This probably isn't the book I would have picked for our first children's book linkup. However, it is one of her favorites. It's the first book she memorized. It cracks me up because if you didn't know any better, you would think she could read. For the record, she cannot but it makes quite the parlor trick.

The book is: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?

We bought this book from Kohl's for $5. I bought it for her because I remember really enjoying it when I was in Kindergarten. Chloe is a little over 2 now and she loves this book. She loved it when I first bought it which was well before she was 2. So, I think this book will have a long shelf life on any kid's bookshelf. I like that it teaches colors, animals and rhyme (which in turn helps with phonics and reading). I enjoy the illustrations, too. Like the cover, the illustrations are reminiscent of a child's drawing which I think is appealing to children (and the young at myself).

This book should be easy to find at a public library. But, you can purchase it on Amazon for under $8.  

Thanks to Heather at What Does She Do All Day? for hosting this linkup! Go check out more book recommendations over at her blog. 


  1. Thanks for linking up! Brown Bear is a big hit around here, too! We have a slide and find version of it and Cupcake has always loved looking under the flaps for the next animal.

  2. She really is just like her Mama which you know too well. I'm so glad she loves to "read". Have I told you lately, Thank you and Mark for such a precious grandbaby. :)

  3. Chloe is so pretty as she reads her book. Her hair is pretty too. I know she will sing alot as she reads. She is so talented. Glad you can move real soon. Thanks for the news of your new home.

  4. I saw that in Kohls - I keep meaning to buy it and I haven't - we love the other Eric Carle books too! The colors are so beautiful!


Thanks for reading!
