Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-When Little Bear hurts her head, takes a tumble, and loses her friends, a kiss from Big Bear makes everything okay. The cub tries to return the love when her parent gets bad news in a letter. Kisses and tickles help a little, but even a grown-up can't resist the healing power of Band-Aids. The simple words and concepts make this a good selection for storytime and one-on-one sharing. The gender of the adult bear is not specified, making the book equally appealing for father-child sharing. The soft and rounded illustrations are rendered in warm, subtle watercolors. Endpapers show Little Bear expressing a variety of emotions that might stimulate discussions of feelings.-Jeanette Larson, Texas State Library, Austin Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
