Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is a children’s picture book published in 1967. Written and illustrated by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle, the book helps young children associate colors and animals.
The Teacher asks Brown Bear “What do you see?” and then repeats the question “What do you see?” to the animal Brown Bear sees. The process is repeated (with rhythm) for all the animals and characters – Brown Bear, Red Bird, Yellow Duck, Blue Horse, Green Frog, Purple Cat, White Dog, Black Sheep, a Goldfish, a Teacher and Students or Children. The 1984 British edition of the book substitutes a monkey for the teacher. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org
