The Origins of Brown Bear
On a train ride in 1966, the title phrase Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? popped into Bill Martin Jr.'s head. Later, he spotted an illustration of a red lobster in a magazine and contacted the creator, Eric Carle, to ask if he would illustrate his poem. So began Eric Carle's career as a children's book illustrator--along with a life-long collaborative friendship with Bill Martin Jr. Since then, Brown Bear and the three companion titles, Polar Bear, Panda Bear, and Baby Bear, have gone on to sell millions of copies worldwide.
The Bear books are a cultural landmark and a key milestone in many children's reading lives. And many adults today remember reading the Bear books themselves as well as the experience of reading them for the first time to their own children. Whether in a picture book or a reader, and now in eBook and audio, the same bold graphics and repetitive, rhythmic text have truly stood the test of time.
Throughout Eric Carle's career, he has shown an unshakeable commitment to artistic integrity and a dedication to making art accessible to children. His skillfully designed and beautifully rendered collage art is admired by fellow artists, colleagues and fans in equal measure. And in 2002, with his wife Barbara, Eric founded The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts, the first museum of its kind in the United States.

A Question for Eric Carle
Before the Bear books, you worked in advertising but had not yet created a children's book. What went through your mind when you first heard from author Bill Martin Jr. about the Brown Bear manuscript? What made you want to illustrate it?
Eric Carle: At that point I was doing work-for-hire and I was very pleased to have the chance to do something different. I went through the manuscript and could see in my mind images of bright colorful animals, big and bold and simple like in posters. I was actually able to finish the art for this book and deliver it in one weekend. The whole process felt right and I was very excited by the opportunity to work on the book with Bill, which really changed my life and set me on the true course in my career.

For starters, it just flows. Most other baby books are so scattered. You’ll somehow memorize this book after 2-3 times you’ve read it.
Minimal text! And it keeps the same pattern of words but changing the animals out.
It’s colorful!! Big animals on the pages and nothing else.
It’s small and compact and a board book so no papercuts. Plus the quality of this book is nice and thick and holding up nicely after excessive use.
Go ahead and get Polar Bear, Polar Bear, and Panda Bear, Panda Bear while you’re at it.
I’d pay more than we paid for this book- it’s a staplepiece to a babies library.
I highly recommend this book and even buy it as gifts for new moms! It is a classic for every nursery.
Also, I want to note that I dont get sick of reading it over and over...

They make excellent choice for children under age 2.
My toddler loves this book, if it gets picked up by her we end up reading many a times.
The constant repitition makes it more rhythmic for the young ears.
Very small children enjoy repitition in everything be it any kind of work..they would want to do it again n again and
Brown 🐻 bear, uses repitition in every page.
What do you see?
I see a red bird
Looking at me.
What do you see?
I see a yellow duck
Looking at me
So this goes on
Each two pages has one big bold colourful artwork of animals.
Introduction to some animals and birds and some colours.
I've read this book over and over. The upbeat rhythm prevents it from ever getting monotonous - even after 6 months.
I can even recite this book to my son without looking at the book. Just keep to the rhythm and make up the animals... I see a purple duck, yellow zebra and so on.
I highly recommend this book for parents of newborns. Your child will eventually recognise this book from the way it's read.
The old saying, "don't judge a book by its cover", is very true here.
