I am sure you have heard of “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see” a children’s book classic, written and illustrated by Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle, making it a perfect read-aloud for young readers on World Book Day! It is even great for young bilingual readers and learners as it reviews vocabulary words and colors. This book has probably even been translated into your target language. In this post, I am going to share a few hands-on activities that your kids can do as you read them the book or after they have read it to you!
