Little Bear (I Can Read Books)
Synopses & Reviews
Enter the world of Little Bear. Children will be entranced by Little Bear's trip to the moon, his birthday party, and his wishes and adventures.
This is the first of the five classic books about Little Bear, introducing the funny and strikingly childlike bear cub and his friends. The combination of Else Holmelund Minarik's simple, yet eloquent, stories and Maurice Sendak's warm, tender illustrations has made this beloved character an enduring favorite among beginning readers.
These tender and eloquent stories about Little Bear are "told with a forthright simplicity that is never forced or artifically repetitious".--Language Arts. An ALA Notable Children's Book. Full-color illustrations.
Meet Little Bear, a friend to millions of children. And meet Mother Bear, who is there whenever Little Bear needs her. When it is cold and snowy outside, she finds just the right outfit for Little Bear to play in. When he goes to the moon, she has a hot lunch waiting for him on his return. At night she helps him get to sleep. And, of course, she never forgets his birthday.
