Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You  See?
Author Bill Martin 
Picture and Story by Danielle Jefferson

    "Brown Bear, Brown Bear what do you see?"  Brown Bear replies that he sees a red bird looking at him. 
Then the red bird is asked what she sees.  She sees a yellow duck looking at her.
The yellow duck sees a blue horse looking at him.  The blue horse is asked what he sees.
He sees a green frog looking at him.  When the green frog is asked what he sees,
 he says that he sees a purple cat looking at him.
     The purple cat is asked what she sees, and she says that she sees a white dog looking at her.
The white dog is asked what he sees and he says that he sees a black sheep looking at him.
 When the black sheep is asked what he sees, he says he sees a goldfish looking at him.
  "Goldfish, Goldfish, what do you see?
  "I see a teacher looking at me.
  "Teacher, Teacher, what do you see?
  "I see children looking at me."
    The children are then asked what they see and they recall everything that they saw: a brown bear, a red bird, a yellow duck,
a blue horse, a green frog, a purple cat, a white dog, a black sheep, a goldfish, and a teacher looking at them.     

Critical Thinking Questions:
1. Name  the different animals that had unusual colors. If you could be a animal in the story, which animal would you be and why?  What color would you be?
2.  If you  were in the forrest with Brown Bear, what animals would you see?
