Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? was one of my son's favorites when he was small and he would ask my husband to read it over and over again. It was fun to revisit it for this month's Virtual Book Club for Kids.
After reading each page, I would ask a question in the same form as the book. "Drew, Drew, what do you see?" and then he would identify something in the room that was the same color as the animal on the page. "I see a green cup looking at me." Sometimes he asked me the question. It was a great way to focus on the pattern and repetition in the book and is a great oral language activity for toddlers and preschoolers. The best part was it requires no preparation or special materials and can be played almost anywhere.
Have you done any activities or crafts for Bill Martin Jr's books? Please link them up or share it on the Virtual Book Club for Kids facebook page.
