A little girl and her teddy bear wet their toes in the water, look up at the sky rather than fly in a plane, and sit on a stair because her small toy can't swim, says he can't fly, and doesn't like climbing. The girl reassures her companion that one day he will be a great big bear who won't be so afraid, and then the two of them will be able to do all those things. The story opts for rhyme over grammar: "Little bear and me/dipped our toes in the sea....Me and little bear sat on the stair," and the rhythm is a little clunky in places, but the large, colorful spreads with images of a child sharing all of her adventures with a beloved stuffed animal will feel familiar and comforting to young readers. A marginal purchase.
