How to sign "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you See?"



By far, the most popular video I have posted to YouTube. It just surpassed the 10,000 views mark!



I'm still sharing it every chance I get because "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you See?" is such a classic. It has a natural rythm both the storyteller and listener enjoy. If you don't have this book in your home library, I highly recommend making the addition. And if you can get this specific edition with the sliding windows, even better! Babies and toddlers become more engaged when there is a tactile element in a book. It will quickly become one of the books your baby will ask you to read again and again.

The bonus is that you learn both animal signs and color signs in one video:

                                                                                      
If you're local to San Diego, I hope to see you at an upcoming Signing Story Time - you can join our meetup
 
What favorite book would you like to see added to the Signing Story Time collection on our YouTube channel? I'd love to hear your recommendations.

    1. Thank you Stan! I've gotten a little better with my recordings more recently - in fact I'm going to try to upload a couple more this week. How old is your new grandbaby?

  3. Oh my gosh, I can't wait to do this with the kids. My oldest just drew her own Brown Bear Book and so how fun would it be to read through that and sign. LOVE LOVE! Congrats on the huge milestone!
