Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Little Bear answers the call of the wild in this thoughtfully written, beautifully illustrated, and exquisitely animated adventure. Based on the characters in Else Homelund Minarik and Maurice Sendak's books, this tale finds Little Bear and Father Bear on a camping trip, where Little Bear meets a wilderness dweller named Cub. A veritable babe in the woods, Little Bear is quite taken with Cub, who comes home to spend the night -- opting to sleep under Little Bear's bed because it reminds him more of his cave. When Cub reveals that he was separated from his parents, Little Bear organizes a search party with his friends Owl, Duck, and Cat. Leisurely paced and 75 minutes in length, the movie remains mostly true to the gentle spirit of Minarik's stories. In a momentary departure from the warm and fuzzy tone of the Nick Jr. series, though, the characters face minor peril in the menacing form of a mountain lion, which purrs ominously. But don't worry: This is just the sort of thing Cub handles with aplomb. Along with all the sweet-natured adventure and subtle messages for kids, adults will savor the soundtrack, which features Sean Colvin performing two lovely songs -- "Great Big World" and "Everybody Wants to Paint My Picture."
