Overview


Where is Little Bear? In this charming look-and-find book, highlighted by Jackie Morris's gorgeous animal fantasies, very young children explore theatrical and circus settings as they attempt to find the missing cub. The concepts of opposites, colors, and contrasts are introduced in the read-aloud nursery verse, and simple clues and vivid word images help children discover Little Bear, whether he's trying on a hat, standing on his head, or floating in a balloon. Gradually Little Bear moves into a more familiar landscape of tea and bath — a cue for little bears' bedtimes everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Steeped in dreamy surrealism, this intriguing picture book invites little ones to find the smiling polar bear tucked into each spread-among onion-domed towers, lavishly robed circus performers, mermaid dolphin-riders, and tooth-brushing crocodiles. (As in dreams, somehow this all makes sense.) Far more than a find-the-object book, this one fires up the imagination with its lush, exotic watercolors and rhyming text: "Ducks like the rain, penguins like the snow/Here's Little Bear-and he's putting on a show!" (ages Birth to 2)

From the Publisher
This look-and-find journey through a series of ultra-colourful settings in different countries is simply astonishing.
