Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? (Brown Bear and Friends) (Board book)
What will you hear when you read this book to a preschool child?
Lots of noise!
Children will chant the rhythmic words. They'll make the sounds the animals make. And they'll pretend to be the zoo animals featured in the book-- look at the last page!
Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle are two of the most respected names in children's education and children's illustrations. This collaboration, their first since the classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (published more than thirty years ago and still a best-seller) shows two masters at their best.

About the Author
Bill Martin, Jr. (1916-2004) was an elementary-school principal, teacher, writer, and poet. His more than 300 books, among them the bestselling classics Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?; Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?; Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?; and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, are a testament to his ability to speak directly to children. Martin held a doctoral degree in early childhood education. Born in Kansas, he worked as an elementary-school principal in Chicago before moving to New York City, where he worked in publishing developing innovative reading programs for schools. After several years, he devoted himself full-time to writing his children’s books. He lived in New York until 1993, when he moved to Texas. He lived in the east Texas woods, near the town of Commerce, until he passed away in 2004.
Eric Carle is one of America's leading children's book illustrators. Born in the United States, he spent some time in Germany where he studied at the Academy of Applied Art in Stuttgart. His work has won many awards and has been published in more than a dozen countries around the world. He is author and illustrator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and illustrator of Bill Martin, Jr.'s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
“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?'” —School Library Journal, starred review

Sport: Ship Dog of the Great Lakes is Poppy-Approved!
In 1914 crew members of the lighthouse tender Hyacinth rescued a stray puppy from the Milwaukee River
and named him Sport. For the next twelve years, this charming Newfoundland-retriever mix lived the life of a ship dog.
In this beautifully illustrated children’s book based on historical documents and photographs, readers share in Sport’s
adventures while discovering the various ways lighthouse tender ships helped keep the lake safe for others.
A signed book plus an adorable plush make a great gift combo!
