Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Now in board book, Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr, illus. by Eric Carle, offers a lineup of endangered species that includes a water buffalo, spider monkey, macaroni penguin and whooping crane, among others. PW's starred review of the original edition called this "another standout from the creators of a line of perennial favorites." Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
The bears are back! The author-illustrator team that introduced the classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? in 1967 return this summer with Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?. Martin's simple, rhythmic text features ten endangered creatures, including a bald eagle, sea lion and spider monkey. As with the earlier book, each page invites the child to focus on one animal depicted by Eric Carle. The engaging chant and collages show how each animal moves, whether soaring, splashing or swinging. Little ones will probably imitate these motions with delight. Especially powerful is the book's closing image: a moon-faced "dreaming child" watching over all ten creatures "wild and free." 2003, Henry Holt, Ages 1 to 5.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-While some adults may sigh at the similarity of this title to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (1983) and Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? (1995, both Holt), children will be thrilled. A water buffalo, a green sea turtle, a black panther, and other animals answer that familiar call, "What do you see?" Readers view all these creatures and more, a treat considering that the 10 animals featured are all endangered species and therefore rare sights. The book closes wistfully with a dreaming child who sees the animals all "wild and free." Names like "macaroni penguin" contribute to some awkwardness in the text's rhythm, but the bright collage images and lilting language bring the animals to life on the page-soaring, swinging, or even strutting. Opening with a helpful note on the importance of animal protection, this title will make a perfect segue into conversations about endangered species.-Julie Roach, Malden Public Library, MA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
