Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What do you see?

Panda Bear, Panda Bear what do you see?

Written by Bill Martin Jr

Illustrated by Eric Carle

Published by Puffin

Testing the sense once again, with a wildlife-friendly theme, Eric Carle and Bill Martin Jr dip back into the animal kingdom for another book taking your toddler on a journey to discover endangered species. As ever, it's Carle's art style that's the star of the show because the book treads an already well worn path laid down by Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you hear and Brown Bear, Brown Bear what do you see?

That said, the animal characters are bold, colourful and if you read books aloud like I do, you'll enjoy trying to come up with funny voices for each species as you turn the page. 
Charlotte's best bit: The "Spaceship Girl".

Daddy's favourite bit: The way Carle produces little mini illustrations of the bigger pages / animal pictures for the last page of the book.
