  • ISBN: 0805017585 (hc : alk. paper) :
Summary: Illustrations and rhyming text present ten different endangered animals.
Authors: Carle, Eric, (ill.).
  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2003 July #1
    PreS-Gr. 2. In this book, Martin and Carle change the focus of their classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? to endangered species. Using deceptively simple repetitive rhyme, double-page spreads lead from one animal to the next, "Red Wolf, Red Wolf, / what do you see? / I see a whooping crane / flying by me." The pictures, featuring animals strolling, splashing, and soaring, are brilliant lessons in the application of color, shape, form, and texture. Carle's use of negative space and of sculptural line conveys not only the essence of each animal but also the energy of its movement. The book ends with a dreaming child who sees all the animals: "all wild and free--that's what I see!" A fine read-aloud with a subtle, yet clear, message.

    More than 35 years ago, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? introduced two men who are now giants in the children's book field, Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle. Two years ago they collaborated on Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?, and now they join forces a third time to zero in on endangered species Martin's rhyming couplets dance to a now-familiar brisk beat, parading past a lineup that includes a water buffalo, spider monkey, macaroni penguin and whooping crane, among others. As before, each animal's response to the question "What do you see?" prompts a turn of the page and a new creature to view ("Sea Lion, Sea Lion, what do you see?/ I see a red wolf sneaking by me"). In the end, a "dreaming child" sees the entire cast of critters, "all wild and free." The bouncy repetition and streamlined presentation is keenly attuned to a preschool audience, who will also find much to pore over in the artwork. Carle's signature jewel-toned tissue paper and acrylic collages are simple enough for youngest onlookers to appreciate, yet filled with subtleties to delight adult eyes (such as the cool, lush blues of sea and sky) and he creates a sense of forward motion through his positioning of the animals (they all face toward the right-hand page). Another standout from the creators of a line of perennial favorites. Ages 2-5. (Aug.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Now in board book, Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr, illus. by Eric Carle, offers a lineup of endangered species that includes a water buffalo, spider monkey, macaroni penguin and whooping crane, among others. PW's starred review of the original edition called this "another standout from the creators of a line of perennial favorites." Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
  • School Library Journal Reviews : SLJ Reviews 2003 August
    PreS-Gr 1-While some adults may sigh at the similarity of this title to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (1983) and Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? (1995, both Holt), children will be thrilled. A water buffalo, a green sea turtle, a black panther, and other animals answer that familiar call, "What do you see?" Readers view all these creatures and more, a treat considering that the 10 animals featured are all endangered species and therefore rare sights. The book closes wistfully with a dreaming child who sees the animals all "wild and free." Names like "macaroni penguin" contribute to some awkwardness in the text's rhythm, but the bright collage images and lilting language bring the animals to life on the page-soaring, swinging, or even strutting. Opening with a helpful note on the importance of animal protection, this title will make a perfect segue into conversations about endangered species.-Julie Roach, Malden Public Library, MA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
  • School Library Journal Reviews : SLJ Reviews 2014 December

    PreS-Gr 1—Lap book editions (8.5" × 11") of two of this creative team's classic titles. The simple, repetitive texts encourage toddler interaction, and the bold iconic images are perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing. The first title features 10 North American animals, while the second spotlights 10 endangered or threatened species. Carle's gorgeous painted and cut-paper collages are enormously appealing and engaging.

    PreS-Gr 1—Martin and Carle collaborated on Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (1967), Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? (1991), Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See? (2003), and Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See? (2007, all Holt). In July of 2010, the first two titles became available in an easy-reader format, and these titles complete the quartet. They do not differ from the original trade book publications in terms of either text or illustration. The lilting, infectious rhymes and bold, bright collages, remain intact. The differences come first in terms of trim size." The intention here is that children who have had an enjoyable lap-sit hearing these books will now read them independently, attracted by the more "grown-up" format. These first-reader editions include both activities and discussion suggestions to extend the stories. Libraries in need of more books for emergent readers will welcome these popular favorites.—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
