Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
I began my David Reads Children’s Books, DRCB for short, project almost a year ago with the shorter easier to read books, my target audience being very young children, one in particular, a baby girl born in Appleton, Wisconsin, the first granddaughter of a friend I first met while on a work assignment in Wisconsin a little over three years ago. Amelia Curtis, is the daughter of Thomas and Alicia, less furry little sister to puppy Lily, and the beloved niece of her Uncle Jim. I wish every baby came home to such a loving and adoring family, a village really for there was and still is a host of family and friends lined up to love baby Amelia. And that is how it should be.
I have already read to you the classic little tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, but here is another tale of one more bear, a brown, brown bear. Some say we have a tendency to think of animals in human terms but I wonder sometimes if they might take that as an insult for instinctively they often take better and more loving care of their own than we humans do being so busy and preoccupied with so many other things.
Before my first child was born I fell in love with The Carpenter’s song that I attach my sing-along cover of below. Sweet Karen, the lead singer of the duo died before she ever got to be a mommy. I like to think that nevertheless many a baby, young and old, has been soothed to sleep by her wonderful loving voice.
For a real treat google Karen and Richard doing the song without my uninvited help. I am sure they won’t mind you singing along as you listen. You might even attract a brown bear or two to your window for a look and a listen, well maybe not you big city folk.
