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
