Baby Bear meets all sorts of different animals until he finally finds what he is looking for – his mother. Told through Bill Martin’s rhythmic text and Eric Carle’s vibrant images – this is the fourth and final companion title to the much-loved classic “Brown Bear Brown Bear, What Do You See?”


‘Carle’s books all have an educational element — they teach about animals, numbers, colours and nature — but a big part of their appeal is that they are not didactic or laboured, but light and entertaining. There’s warmth and humour there too.’ — Junior ‘The natural history is a source for smiles, the illustrations in collage and paint are little works of art’ — The Times Educational Supplement

  1. my stepdaughter reads this book to our baby and to hear, “what do you see” just souds so nice. I love this book

  2. My baby absolutely lights up with these pictures and the cadence
    of the story. I probably in retrospect would have bought the board book
    because she wants to eat the pages. Other than that she loves the book
    and the pictures.
