Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
by Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle
Contains over 150 Sight Words
This is an excellent beginner book because it contains repetition of familiar words in simple sentence patterns. Each sentence is eight words or less and most of the sentences repeat basic high frequency sight words (approximately 6 out of 8). Sight words represent almost 77% of this book’s text, allowing a beginner reader to identify most words.
The repetition and rhyming are wonderful features as my daughter can recite the entire book without turning the first page. If your child is just beginning to learn to read this book is perfect as the content focuses on familiar topics – animals and colors. The illustrator, Eric Carle does a wonderful job drawing colorful animals, students and a teacher. We give this book five stars!
