    "It is a beautiful book. "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?" has been a great addition to my little one library. My toddler loves when I read the book to him. Often times he begs me to read it again. The illustrations on the book are marvelous given their simplicity and originality. I would definitely recommend this book to any parent who's looking to read a book to their toddler. "

    "Now this is one of my all-time favorites. I loved saying all the junk food the caterpillar ate as fast as possible. All my kids laughed at that. They also loved putting their tiny fingers in the holes where the caterpillar "ate" the food. A classic, must-read to your children or grandchildren."

    "I like the concept of the mother always coming after the child for his safety, but I would prefer a lesson for the children instead of a mother's love. I think this book is best for a fun read than for teaching a lesson. The book has beautiful drawings despite the flaws."

    "This is a decent educational book that teaches English, Spanish and the concept of shapes. However, it's all done in black and white, which really takes points away from it for me. I would prefer something with color and more of a story, personally."
