What did you like about the book? This edition of Brown Bear, Brown Bear is a sturdy board book with a special lift the tab format. There is also a sticker on it saying it has met the safety standards as set out by the U.S. department of safety standards. The tabs are easy to maneuver for little hands and the pictures are large and colorful. Each animal takes 2 pages so this book would be a good read aloud at libraries. All children will be able to see the pictures clearly. This classic works well in this format.
Anything you didn’t like about it? I liked everything about this book, and felt this board book was one of the better renditions of this story.
To Whom Would You Recommend this book? This is a perfect book for a very young toddler. It will hold up well and the tabs on the side of the book help go to the pages you want.
Who should buy this book? Public and Elementary school libraries
Where would you shelve it ? Children’s Books
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes, it is a cute book.
