Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is one of Luke's favorite books. Here are some fun activities to do with your child when you read it with them. As you read the book, invite your child to chime in while you read the predictable text. They will have fun predicting and naming each animal that comes next.
After you read the story ask them how they were able to predict (use the word predict - it's a great vocabulary word for them to master now) which animal would be next.
Ask them, what other clues could the author have used? What clues would they give to the reader if they were the author?
