School Library Journal - 11/01/1991 PreS-Gr 1-- In a logical sensory follow-up to Martin's and Carle's wildly successful Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (Holt, 1983), this dynamic duo now offers sounds. The polar bear hears a lion roaring, who hears a hippopotamus snorting, who hears a flamingo fluting (!), who hears a zebra braying, and so on through a varied list of animals. At last the zookeeper announces that he hears children roaring, snorting, fluting, etc. While the format is very similar to the previous book, Carle's trademark collages have never been more beautiful. Huge animals fill the double-page spreads, glowing with light-filled colors, sans superfluous background. Teachers will smile with delight when they see this wonderful book, and students are sure to utter the familiar request, ``Have you got another one like this one?'' --Ruth Semrau, Lovejoy School, Allen, TX - Copyright 1991 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 11/15/1991 Twenty-five years after they collaborated on Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Martin and Carle have created a new book based on animal sounds. With the same pattern used in Brown Bear 10 zoo animals each hear another animal's distinctive vocalization until the walrus hears a zookeeper whistling in my ear, and the zookeeper hears children making animal sounds--growling, roaring, braying. Each colorful illustration of the animals in Carle's familiar style covers a double-page spread, facilitating use for read-alouds in groups. (Reviewed Nov. 15, 1991) - Copyright 1991 Booklist.
