Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

I see a GIVEAWAY looking at me!

Yep, that's right!  Another giveaway on Little Lucy Lu!
One month ago, I was celebrating 100 followers with my very first giveaway, and now ... 300+ followers! I think that calls for another celebratory giveaway! :-)

Now.
Back to the title of this post ....
Does everyone know the book I'm talking about up there?
This one!


As a mama AND a kindergarten teacher .... I can assure you - Eric Carle and I are practically on a first-name basis.
Well, on my end, anyway.
Pretty sure Eric Carle doesn't know I'm alive.  
But only like 99.9% sure .....


Anyway.  
You can imagine what a CRAZY-PROUD moment it was the other day when Lucy recited read this entire book, cover to cover!?!
I clapped.  I cheered.  I practically cried.

But this is a perfect example of the AWESOME way many of Eric Carle's books enable even the earliest "readers" to be successful, right from the start ..... which is the reason why we start with Brown Bear in kindergarten every year ....  the kids LOVE that they can read it!

Moving on ....
I have almost all of the Eric Carle books in my classroom library ... and many of them here at home in Lucy's library, too.
You can see a complete list of Eric Carle's books HERE.
Some of my very favorites include:



So.
Because I (the mama) AND I (the kindergarten teacher) love Eric Carle books.
Because Lucy can "read" an Eric Carle book.
Because ALL kids love Eric Carle books.
And because Little Lucy Lu now has over 300 followers, I am giving one lucky reader the Brown Bear and Friends Board Book Gift Set.
The set includes Brown Bear, Brown Bear ... Polar Bear, Polar Bear ... Panda Bear, Panda Bear (in the board book version ... because we all know board books are a MUST with little ones!).
(*Note:  If you already have these books, I will send you your choice of another Eric Carle book!)

  1. I love this book!!! Ella "reads" it to me every day and I remember reading it to Anna's kindergarten class like it was yesterday....now she is getting ready to finish fifth grade.......sniff, sniff.

    My favorite is the Hungry Caterpillar as that was my most fave childhood book and every time I read it, I feel five all over again.
