Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? by Bill Martin Jr.What will you hear when you read this book to a preschool child?
Lots of noise!
Children will chant the rhythmic words. Theyll make the sounds the animals make. And theyll 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 childrens education and childrens 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.

Decoding Polar Bear Behavior
Polar bears can communicate and express their emotions through body language, sounds and smells. We humans make little use of our sense of smell; however body language and sounds play an important role in our behaviour. When a bear makes a chuffing sound, it may be expressing feelings of stress or worry. You might hear a mother who fears for the safety of her cub or a bear afraid of the sound of a snowmobile engine make such a sound. When they do, you should not approach the animal, so as not to frighten it and provoke it to run away fast, which may result in the polar bear becoming overheated. Intense sniffing and peering means a polar bear has a clear interest and curiosity about something. Sometimes polar bears make unexpected visits in the vicinity of the Polish Polar Station Hornsund on Spitsbergen.
Human Interactions with Polar Bears
Ursine communication is not unlike communicating with your pet dog. Bears communicate to keep cubs and mothers together, find mates and relieve social tensions. Bears speak a language of dominance and submission, of aggression or solicitation. They react to people in the same way they would react to another bear. Paying attention to what bears have to say should keep you out of trouble. More often than not, bear behaviour is misinterpreted.
A: Polar bears are fairly silent creatures overall — partly because they spend most of their life alone and partly because they are stealth hunters. That being said, polar bears do have a wide range of vocalizations that they use in the social interactions that occur during e. These sounds include growling, roaring, moaning, huffing, coughing, crying, and popping their jaw. Jump to. Sections of this page.
