Meet Little Bear, a friend to millions of children. And meet Mother Bear, who is there whenever Little Bear needs her. When it is cold and snowy outside, she finds just the right outfit for Little Bear to play in. When he goes to the moon, she has hot lunch waiting for him on his return. At night she helps him get to sleep. And, of course, she never forgets his birthday.
I read this book for the Childhood Favourites Reading Challenge. When I learned about this challenge, I immediately thought of this book. It was the first book I ever read, so it holds a special place in my heart. I stood in the children's section of our local library today and read it, chuckling to myself as I read the text and enjoyed the pictures, especially of Little Bear and his "space helmet" made from a box and his mother surprising him and his friends with birthday cake!
This is a cute book with stories that my five year old couold really grasp. This book was also really fun for me, Mom, to read because of the love and tenderness the mother bear shows toward her youngster.
