Big Bear Little Bear by David Bedford, Jane Chapman


Big Bear Little Bear by David Bedford, Jane Chapman

Little Bear longs to be as big and as fast as his mother. In the cold Arctic snow, Mother Bear shows the little bear cub what it's like to be grown up. But after riding on Mother Bear's shoulders and snuggling up for the night, Little Bear realises that he's not quite ready to grow up yet. A gorgeous 15th anniversary edition of this favourite story. With a wonderfully gentle text from David Bedford (I've Seen Santa! and Bedtime for Little Bears) and stunning illustrations from bestselling illustrator Jane Chapman (The Magical Snow Garden, The Very Noisy Night), this beautiful book is perfect for bedtime cuddles.
