School Library Journal - 10/01/1990 A worthy successor to Bill Martin's Brown Bear, Brown Bear , What Do You See? (Holt, 1983). With its patterned response to the title, ``What did you see?,'' and the accompanying lead-in picture showing part of a farmyard animal, this book immediately draws children into the story. The lively, unspoken storyline of a shock-headed toddler playing silly games with the animals he meets and gradually shedding his shoes, socks, and jacket fills out the spare text for beginning readers. The accumulating line of animals marching in wild sweeping patterns across the page gives viewers a bouncy, flowing experience from page to page. With only six animals, the story is brief; the watercolors, while predominantly realistic in tone and anatomical detail, have an exaggerated roundness and glow that give a fanciful turn to the naming story. The animals and toddler become progressively more animated, until story's end, which features a two-page, wordless spread reminiscent of Max's ``wild rumpus'' in Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are . The focus on the pages is clearly on the short text and the characters, making for a simple yet active experience for beginning readers and very young listeners. --Ruth K.
