Can You See a Little Bear? by James Mayhew

Where is Little Bear? In this charming look-and-find book, highlighted by Jackie Morris's gorgeous animal fantasies, very young children explore theatrical and circus settings as they attempt to find the missing cub. The concepts of opposites, colors, and contrasts are introduced in the read-aloud nursery verse, and simple clues and vivid word images help children discover Little Bear, whether he's trying on a hat, standing on his head, or floating in a balloon. Gradually Little Bear moves into a more familiar landscape of tea, bath, and bedtime, a cue for little bears' bedtimes everywhere.


This look-and-find journey through a series of ultra-colourful settings in different countries is simply astonishing. Independent This inspired book more than deserves to become a prize winner. Carousel A sumptuous book that really teaches children to look at pictures. The Illustrations are fabulous, from the star studded cover and the journey on the first end papers onwards... The rhyming text is perfect to read aloud. The Ultimate First Book Guide

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
