Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you hear? is one of the Eric Carle’s classics. Easy to read and enjoy with your young kids. It emphasis on some animal sounds that you can catch. It focuses on some of the not so common animals like hippopotamus, boa constrictor, flamingo, peacock, walrus, etc. I never knew peacock yelps, walrus bellows, and leopard snarls. It will definitely add to your children’s vocabulary while enjoying poetic style of the book that sounds like a song.
