Meet the Author

Roger Priddy's love for children's early learning has led him to create some of publishing's most successful children's non-fiction books, including Priddy Books' million-copy bestsellers, My Big Animal Book and Happy Baby Words.

Roger says:

"It is always rewarding to see a child enjoying and learning something from one of our books, especially babies, when you think it could be the first book they have ever seen.

"I am very lucky to have a career where you get to think up fun ways to teach a kid how to write their letters and learn their first words, whilst finding out about Dinosaurs at the same time!"

Roger lives with his wife, Zena, in London and Cork, Ireland. They have four children, who have given him most of his best ideas for his books.

My son of 9 months finds much joy in the board book version of Eric Carle's classic, Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? He watches intently has I read each word and turn each page. There's something about the repetition of the words and the brightly colored animals that attracts him again and again to this book. When we get to the end, he cries unless I start from page one again. After four or five readings he's ready to study one page and slobber on the book's corner.

This book encouraged my son and his friend to make all kinds of animal sounds and laugh when they finally got them right and remembered them. I love to see my son laugh!

This book has been amazing! Our daughter packs this book in her backpack anytime we leave the house. Even to take to the park! And she most of all loves to read it to us and also her, 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?' book every night before bed.

My son who's 21 months old absolutely loves this book and has us read to him at least 10-15 times per day. He can easily identify each animal and is also able to repeat after us and sometimes even by himself. I would greatly recommend this book for young kids and adults likewise.

Ever since a first-grade teacher friend of mine introduced us to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? we have been really excited and delighted with these seemingly simple and entertaining little books. We had gone over that book numerous times with our baby boy, and when he started approaching one year of age he *really* got interested in it. So we decided to take a look at some other books in the series, including this one. The premise of this little book is similar that of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?: various animals are asked what they hear, and they point to other animals. All the questions are posed as simple rhymes, and this is one of the main charms of this book. The illustrations are simple yet interesting, and kids will definitely find them fascinating. Unlike Brown Bear, Brown Bear, this book eschews some fanciful animal colors (like purple cat and blue horse), and sticks with the "real" animals. This book also features some more exotic animals (like the boa constrictor) and challenges kids to learn about the creatures one can probably only see at the zoo. The book also teaches about animal sounds, something that even most adults are not too familiar with. In fact, it's the educational value of these books that I delight the most in. I have not taken a look at the other versions of this book, but the board book is definitely well designed and immensely suitable for very young kids. Could not recommend it more.

Not only are the illustrations great, but the fact that it comes with the CD allows my daughter to read independently! Love all Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle books.

Another rollicking rhyming story using your senses, Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do you Hear? abounds with animal sounds. Its vibrant and zany illustrations of a variety of animals, not necessarily the top 10 your child will already know, make for a fun read. My grandson asks for it over and over. And he tries to whistle almost every time too! I have bought it for gifts because most people have Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you See, but not as many have this one. I think they should.

Just as wonderful as the other books by this author and illustrator. The rhyme and tempo make it a favorite for both kids and adults.

I was literate at a very young age, I love all sorts of books especially this one. I have accelled from Polar Bear, Polar Bear..., to all of the Harry Potter Books. I love to read. I read all sorts of books. This one is a great learning experience for all children and there families. I love to do reading fairs just because it involves books. They {books} teach you so many diffrent words, places, religions, and it gives you economical backrounds on anything and everything.

I did not care for this book. We enjoy reading Brown Bear and The Caterpillar books by Eric Carle, so I picked this one up without really reading it first. Please tell me who can bellow like a walrus or what does a flamingo really sound like anyway? It was thoroughly confusing for me to "try" and get the sounds the animals make correct. Why not put familiar animals in the book like a dog, a cat, or a bird?
