( Babble.com on Brown Bear & Friends) About the Author Bill Martin Jr was an elementary-school principal, a teacher, writer, and poet. His many bestselling classics are a testament to his ability to speak directly to children and have left a legacy to generations to come. Eric Carle's innovative books have earned him a place in the canon of classic children's literature. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? was the first book he illustrated; he then went on to write and illustrate The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Grouchy Ladybug, as well as many other books for children. From AudioFile Children love the predictability of this story of one colorful animal who is looking at another . . . who is looking at another . . . From the images adorning the CD itself to the engaging background music to the three distinct narrations, including one in Spanish, this is a production to savor. Gwyneth Paltrow gently personalizes each animal with pauses and emphasis, and a chorus of children provides a variety of additional voices. Bill Martin, Jr., himself also reads his story with a rich, even voice that makes the repetition pop. The Spanish version is perky and enunciated carefully. Youngsters can pore over Eric Carle's beloved illustrations while listening. A.R. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
