REVIEW: My kids and I enjoyed reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? when they were little. This book Noah, Noah, What Do You See is written by the same author that penned Brown Bear, Brown Bear and is written in a similar fashion. It was fun to see my kids turn the pages and read the words on the page at a young age. Because of the books rhythm and the beautiful pictures, it was easy to memorize the story. As they got older they noticed all the sight words and gained confidence they could read words. It was a building block experience to them reading other books. I can’t wait to share this book with my grandchildren and watch them have just much fun as my kids did reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear.
What I love about this little board book is the fact that it introduces young readers to characters in the bible. It will make them ask who is Noah, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, David, Daniel, Esther and several other bible characters this author introduces. This makes the book extra special for me as it helps me familiarize little ones with people of faith and their challenges and triumphs.
This board book will soon become a family favorite as you have fun sharing bible characters and their stories with little ones who will enjoy the pictures and rhythm of the book. I’m sure they will be reading it to you in no time. It’s a confidence builder!
