In May this year, Brown Bear turned fifty! To celebrate, Puffin Books have released a special anniversary edition, complete with an audio CD narrated by none other than the mighty Eric Carle himself!
A truly gorgeous book with snappy rhythmic text in a repeated format making it perfect for little ones to join along to. Eric Carle’s trademark vivid illustrative style introduces Brown Bear’s readers to a whole world of colours.
Although most children are familiar with Carle’s other classic,’The Very Hungry Caterpillar,’ perhaps less would recognise Brown Bear. This special edition would be the ideal way to introduce them to it, especially as it comes with an audio CD narrated by none other than Eric Carle himself.
*Thank you to Puffin Books for sending me this copy to review*
