Digit-al Dozen DOES Book Week Day 3: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Good morning, readers! Today is day 3 of Digit-al Dozen book week and I'm showing another of our favorite Eric Carle books!

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is such a classic and easy book to read with younger kids because they pick up on the repetition and can help "read" it before they can actually read books. Each page shows a different colored animal and asks them what they see, which is the next colored animal.

Example of the first 2 pages:

"Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? I see a red bird looking at me.
Red Bird, Red Bird, What do you see? I see a yellow duck looking at me."

I chose to do the first 4 animals of the book for you on my nails today! Here is a collage of the pages I tried to recreate:

What do you think of this fun look? Are you a fan of this book? We have a really fun sliding board book version of it and it's wonderful! Thanks for reading! I can't wait to show you my final 2 days of Book Week!

Pin It!
