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.
