Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr./Eric Carle

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? was the first in a series of books that Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle teamed up to do together, and has been a classic with children, parents, teachers, and grandparents for over 40 years! (They also produced Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?, Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?, and Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See?)

Brown Bear, Brown Bear is an amazing piece of children's literature, filled not only with the beautiful and eye catching illustrations of Eric Carle, but multiple teachable moments found on each and every page!

My Blog Is Carbon Neutral

Since becoming a parent I admit that I give more thought to the impact I am having on the world than I used to . After all, what was done to the planet previously is what I deal with today, and what I do to the planet in my life is what my son will deal with in the future. We try to bike or walk when we can, we have changed to cloth diapers, we never occurred to me that my blog might be leaving a carbon footprint behind.

How Do Dinosaurs Play With Their Friends? by Jane Yolen

I can't count, even using all my fingers and toes (and probably my son's too), how many times I have read this! My little man keeps walking up, book in hand, big smile on his face and insisting "Book! Again!" How is a mother to say no to that?

Besides, I don't mind reading any of the How Do Dinosaur books, no matter how many times they are requested. I have his favorite, How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, memorized, and the dinosaurs even have their own voices. (Which my son happily tries to imitate!) I love how these books inspire good manners and positive behavior, so I'll read them as often as they are requested...even if it is dozens of times in a day, or back to back.

How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? by Jane Yolen

I can't seem to get away from the How Do Dinosaurs books by Jane Yolen and illustrated by Mark Teague...and I'm glad! Not only are they a favorite of my son's, (I can now actually recite How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? without even opening the book!) but I am not ashamed to say that I absolutely love the series! In my opinion, they are right up there with Dr. Seuss as the best books ever!

As my little man seems to be fighting a stomach bug the last couple of days, it seemed only appropriate that I use this blog to talk about How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?
