The third book in the bestselling Bear series, now in board book format
Thirty-five years after their first groundbreaking collaboration, the creators of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
and Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?
reunited to address the important topic of animal conservation. A Bald Eagle soars, a Spider Monkey swings, a Macaroni Penguin struts, and a Red Wolf sneaks through Bill Martin Jr's rhythmic text and Eric Carle's vibrant images, and all are watched over by our best hope for the future--a dreaming child.
We are delighted to offer Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle's beloved tribute to endangered animals in a board book edition.

“The bright collage images and lilting language bring the animals to life on the page”—School Library Journal
“Carles use of negative space and of sculptural line conveys not only the essence of each animal but also the energy of its movement. A fine read-aloud with a subtle, yet clear, message."—Booklist
A New York Times Best Seller
Addressing the important topic of animal conservation, the third book in the bestselling Bear series is now in board book format. Full color.
