His more than 300 books, among them the bestselling classics Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?; Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?; Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?; and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, are a testament to his ability to speak directly to children. Martin held a doctoral degree in early childhood education. Born in Kansas, he worked as an elementary-school principal in Chicago before moving to New York City, where he worked in publishing developing innovative reading programs for schools. After several years, he devoted himself full-time to writing his children's books. He lived in New York until 1993, when he moved to Texas. He lived in the east Texas woods, near the town of Commerce, until he passed away in 2004.

My son of 9 months finds much joy in the board book version of Eric Carle's classic, Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? He watches intently has I read each word and turn each page. There's something about the repetition of the words and the brightly colored animals that attracts him again and again to this book. When we get to the end, he cries unless I start from page one again. After four or five readings he's ready to study one page and slobber on the book's corner.

This book encouraged my son and his friend to make all kinds of animal sounds and laugh when they finally got them right and remembered them. I love to see my son laugh!

This book has been amazing! Our daughter packs this book in her backpack anytime we leave the house. Even to take to the park! And she most of all loves to read it to us and also her, 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?' book every night before bed.

Ever since a first-grade teacher friend of mine introduced us to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? we have been really excited and delighted with these seemingly simple and entertaining little books. We had gone over that book numerous times with our baby boy, and when he started approaching one year of age he *really* got interested in it. So we decided to take a look at some other books in the series, including this one. The premise of this little book is similar that of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?: various animals are asked what they hear, and they point to other animals. All the questions are posed as simple rhymes, and this is one of the main charms of this book. The illustrations are simple yet interesting, and kids will definitely find them fascinating. Unlike Brown Bear, Brown Bear, this book eschews some fanciful animal colors (like purple cat and blue horse), and sticks with the "real" animals. This book also features some more exotic animals (like the boa constrictor) and challenges kids to learn about the creatures one can probably only see at the zoo. The book also teaches about animal sounds, something that even most adults are not too familiar with. In fact, it's the educational value of these books that I delight the most in. I have not taken a look at the other versions of this book, but the board book is definitely well designed and immensely suitable for very young kids. Could not recommend it more.

My son who's 21 months old absolutely loves this book and has us read to him at least 10-15 times per day. He can easily identify each animal and is also able to repeat after us and sometimes even by himself. I would greatly recommend this book for young kids and adults likewise.

Very cute. This is a good way to get a child involved in a book, with sounds.

Easy reader for kindergarten. It is very repetative, and shows different animals throughout the book.
ahernandez91 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
One of my favorite books to read to children! I love that it is full of repetition and can be read in a sing-song way. The book introduces animals and animal sounds. It is a book that engages the reader to mock the sounds while reading. This book could be used when teaching about different animals in the zoo.

This book follows a whole host of zoo animals and asks them what they hear as they hear one another. Finally we get to a zookeeper, who hears a whole pack of children pretending to be various animals. They're dressed in the animal costumes, and I almost wonder if there were never really any zoo animals, only children. This would easily translate into a preschool play.

This book is rich with color and pictures. The book has vast amount of repetition, also the book is about different animals sounds. At the end of the book, the zoo keeper hears the children making the animal sounds. I loved the pictures and animals. The animals are cute; however, the children dress up as animals at the end is funny. The book is thirty three pages, yet it¿s a simple book. I like how it tells what sounds the animals make. Have the kids make the sound, which the animal would make. Also you can have the kids point to the animals ears. Talk about what color the animals are.

This is a good book to read to younger children. The pictures help them figure out what is going on in the text. It's a very simple book that just goes through all the sounds different animals make. It's a great book to help teach children the different sounds that animals make. They can even make the sounds after you read a page of the book.

This book has good pictures that help decribe what the text says. It is repetitive because every other page starts out as a type of animal followed by "What do you hear?" There is a variety of animals that are mentioned throughout this book, such as hippopotamus, zebra, flamingo, elephant, boa constrictor, etc. The noise that each animal hears is the animal that is on the next page and hears something else, so it is a fun way for children to learn to recognize what each animal looks like and the sound that they make.

Fun book to read and look at. This book would be great to read to kingerdarteners because there are animals on every page and you could talk about the animals and the pictures are great beause there are alot of different colors. After we got done reading the students could paint or draw there own book of animals. EAsy activities are possible!

Polar Bear, Polar Bear What Do You Hear is a well written and illustrated picture book about various animals and the sounds they make. The book is sort of a sequel to the Brown Bear Brown Bear book by the same team (Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle). It takes the reader through various animals and the sounds they produce, with a rhyming and repittive style. It is a great book for very young children, perhaps ages 1 - 4. The illustrations are done beautifully much in the same style as Brown Bear, Brown Bear, with large shapes connecting and colors to make the animals stand out. I highly recommend this book for preK classes, and all children ages 1 - 4.

This book invites the students into a world of new sounds and animals. Each repetitive page honors another new animal, and the sound that animal is known best for. The story ends with the zoo keeper hearing all the noises throughout the book.I LOVE THIS BOOK, and I always have! It is so colorful, and really gives the students an opportunity to get involved in "story time."I would have my younger students try and replicate the beautiful pictures of their favorite animal within the book. My older students could use this simple story to introduce them to beginning research papers. They could each choose an animal, and then find research about that animal to share with the class.

Not only are the illustrations great, but the fact that it comes with the CD allows my daughter to read independently! Love all Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle books.
