A big happy frog, a plump purple cat, a handsome blue horse, and a soft yellow duck-- all parade across the pages of this delightful classic children's book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

best book for learning colour, love itshow more
by Hani Wahab
This is a brilliant book for young children with large colourful illustrations that catch their attention. The verses, although repetitive in nature, teach colours as well as animal names. Being a board book, the pages are easy for children to turn themselves and tough enough to withstand the odd chew!show more
