The Lovereading4Kids comment

Little Bear is keen to know all the ways in which Mummy Bear loves him. Gently, Mummy Bear reminds him of all the things that have done in the day that reflect the love they share. Protecting Baby Bear from a frightening storm and helping Baby Bear find nuts, berries and honey for a delicious supper are just some of the ways in which Mummy Bear shows her love all day and every day!


Because I Love You by David Bedford

At the end of a golden day, Little Bear's mummy tucked him up. But when she bent down to give him a goodnight kiss on his little bear nose, he looked up sadly and said, Mummy, I don't think I've had any love today. Little Bear's mummy hugged him tightly. Oh my poor little bear! she said. I'm sure I've given you lots of love today! But I don't remember any of it, said Little Bear. Then let's remember together, said Mummy...

A heart-warming tale made even more eye-catching with spectacular foil on every spread and a tactile padded cover.

Packed with painterly detail and adorable characters by Rebecca Harry, this is destined to become a firm family favourite that will warm the hearts of readers young and old.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
