The experience

‘Polar bear, polar bear, what do you hear?’ is an amazing story by Bill Martin and Eric Carle with simple rhythmic text that introduces the reader to a menagerie of wild animals from a roaring lion to a fluting flamingo and a trumpeting elephant.

Sit alongside your child and listen to the interactive story together. You can pause the video as you and try and repeat all the different sounds!
