It's winter and little bear doesn't want to go to sleep. He's sure he won't get cold outside. He doesn't mind how long the winter is, how deep the snow might get or how hard the wind might blow. Until, that is, he finds himself all alone in a snowstorm. After a few panicky moments, he finds his mother again. "Mamma, I'm back," he says. "Winter is very long and you might get lonely."
Claudia Rueda's classic picture-book illustrations, with their simple strong lines and shapes, show a very determined little bear and his mother in an increasingly snowy landscape. Little bear is a character that children everywhere will identify with.
Sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Getting right to the heart of a child’s inner life, this is a little gem.
A lovely book about a determined little bear and his patient mother that will be popular for storytime or at bedtime, especially in winter.
Rebellious children will recognize themselves with a smile.
