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.

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?
'A tale about moving on, told with vintage-style illustrations'
'Guaranteed to become a favourite and taken everywhere ... You cannot help but fall in love with Little Bear'
'Eve Bunting deals delicately with the sadness of growing up, and joyfully with the experience of sharing ... charmingly illustrated, and with an important message about change'
