The Lovereading4Kids comment

Tender and true, this is a beautiful story about Little Bear’s loss as he grows too big for the little boat he loves. Since he can no longer fish from the boat or dream in it, he searches for another Little Bear who might enjoy it. Handsomely produced in a neat board book format it charts the pain of growing up and the rewards that can be found, too.

Synopsis

Little Bear's Little Boat by Eve Bunting

Little Bear loves his little boat. He rows it around the lake. He fishes from it. He lies and dreams in it. But then something strange happens. Little Bear begins to grow and, one day, he no longer fits in his little boat.

Poor Little Bear. Does getting bigger mean giving up the things you love?
