The Brown Bear Book is great for development in all areas!
Articulation/Speech: Imitate animal sounds for early language and sound development.
Language: The repetition in the Brown Bear book is great for early learners! Your child can learn animal vocabulary, actions, colors, body parts, and more! Create fun activities to go along with the book, including coloring, sequencing, and pretend play with manipulatives.
Pragmatics: Joint attention
Fine Motor/Visual Motor: Turning pages one by one is a difficult fine motor skill to master, but it is fun and motivating when practiced with a repetitive, engaging book that children love like this one! Practice visual motor skills by having children point to the small animal on the top tab that match the animal on the current page. Take the theme of this book even further (and continue to work on fine and visual motor skills) by completing coloring pages or a simple craft activity for each animal.
Sensory: Find toys and stuffed animals around the house to match the pages. Talk about how each one feels (soft, smooth, heavy, bumpy, etc.). Hide matching plastic animals in a sensory bin of sand or rice/beans.
Gross Motor: For infants, this book is great for independent sitting while child learns to hold the book with both hands. For older children, this book can coordination with animal walks, i.e. bear walk.
