Synopses & Reviews
This is the third book about Little Bear. All his old friends are back—Owl, Cat, Duck, and Hen—and a new friend has come for the summer—a little girl named Emily. Emily has her doll, Lucy, with her, and she promptly introduces Lucy to Little Bear. The three get along wonderfully, and when summer ends, Emily finds the perfect parting gift for her friend.
Beginning readers who already know Little Bear will welcome him joyously, and youngsters who meet Little Bear and Emily here for the first time have a treat in store, for the story and the pictures are better than ever.
Little Bear meets Emily, a human girl, and her doll. 'Once again Little Bear proves himself to be as wistful and tender a little creature as exists in the child's library.' -- K.
