The Lovereading4Kids comment

Emma Carlisle captures all the happiness and excitement felt by a child on a day out at the beach, and adds some extra drama too in this charming picture book. Little Bear describes a day out at the seaside, playing on the beach with his parents, taking a boat trip, flying a kite. It stops being fun when he loses Mum and Dad but he cleverly flies his kite to help them find him again. The warm golden tones conjure up the feel of a sunny summer’s day and the illustrations are full of life and energy. Little Bear is a real character too. ~ Andrea Reece


Bears at the Beach by Emma Carlisle

Mummy Bear has packed the towels, Daddy Bear has packed the parasol and Little Bear is bringing his brand new kite! But the beach can be a busy place, so when Little Bear gets lost his parents hunt high and low. But a clever little bear with a brand new kite won't stay lost for long. All he needs is a strong sea breeze...
