Editorial Reviews

A sweet board book based on Margaret Wise Brown's resilient 1946 classic about "a little fur family / warm as toast / smaller than most / in little fur coats." Who could resist these endearing creatures or the book's furry cover?
Publishers Weekly
The 1946 title Little Fur Family by Margaret Wise Brown, illus. by Garth Williams, is now available in a hand-size board book format with a patch of brown fur on the cover. This may be a new format, but the rest remains the classic tale of a little brown bear who spends a day of discovery in the woods. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
All of those who grew up comforted by Margaret Wise Brown's wonderfully simple tales, including many illustrated by Garth Williams, will be delighted to know this classic is available as a board book.

It is perfectly possible these human little ones will also like to hear their mothers and fathers sing them the song that puts the little fur child to sleep. 2005 (orig. 1946), Harper Festival/Harper Collins, Ages 2 to 6.
