Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cub knows all about the familiar world in the snow den where she was born. When she follows Mom out of their den, tumbling into the Arctic wilderness, she finds that the world under the wide blue sky is big, big, BIG! Its easy to be curious when theres so much to explore—and when Mom is nearby. But when she thinks shes all alone, can Cub be brave? With spare, lyrical words and paintings that are both dramatic and intimate, Cubs Big World tells a tender story of new experiences, homecoming, and the love between a parent and child.

Review:

"'Mom was big and white and warm,' writes Thomson (Around the Neighborhood: A Counting Lullaby), and even though Cepeda paints the polar bear's fur in buttery yellow, his thick, bold brushstrokes instantly convey the totality of a mother's embrace: 'Inside the world were Mom and Cub. And that was all.' One day, Mom and Cub venture out of their den, and amid all the wonders Cub realizes how easy it is to lose Mom. Even the one thing that makes Mom stand out in a 'white, white world' — the black of her nose — can't be counted on: ermine have black tails, and seals have black noses. Cepeda (The Tortoise or the Hare) continually reveals the landscape from different angles and with surprising colors; in the seal vignette, he looks up at Cub as she peeks through a hole in the ice into the green-blue water below. Thomson's calm voice makes it clear that Mom's absence is only temporary, so readers can or snuggle up and relish this big polar world, gorgeously and inventively imagined. Ages 4 — 8. Author's agent: Linda Pratt, Wernick & Pratt." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:
