Little Bear Is Back!
The star of books, television, and video is joined by Mother and Father Bear, Hen, Cat, Duck, and Owl in an exciting new adventure.
On his very first camping trip, Little Bear makes a new friend -- Cub. Cub is a wild bear who lives in the woods. Together they explore the valleys, streams, and waterfalls that Cub knows so well. Their journey through the woods is full of excitement, including a scary adventure for Little Bear and a happy surprise for Cub.
Friendship and bravery are at the heart of this exciting new story that reunites fans of the original I Can Read books with those who love the hit animated television show starring their favorite bear.
Written by Else Holmelund Minarik, the author of the five original Little Bear books, and illustrated by Heather Green, this is the first full-color picture book featuring the enduring character of Little Bear.

Else Holmelund Minarik first introduced readers to her timeless character in the classic Little Bear. The book's publication, with illustrations by Maurice Sendak, launched the I Can Read series. This much-loved author continues to write stories for children at her home in New Hampshire.From School Library Journal:
reSchool-Grade 2-What made the original "Little Bear" books so successful? The spare understatement of Minarik's controlled, easy-reader vocabulary allowed Sendak's detailed, textured, quirky scenes to tell more of the story. The combination was subtle, yet full of warmth, personality, and humor. The current title is a spin-off of the original stories by Minarik, produced by Sendak for television's Nick Jr. Green's watercolors follow the clich‚-ridden story line closely, mimicking the look of her animated televised counterpart, with uncomplicated, outlined figures and backgrounds. Drab greens, grays, and browns illustrate the woodland scenes. The story follows Little Bear's encounter with an initially competitive, but then immediately friendly, wild cub that has been separated from his parents in a storm. At Little Bear's suggestion, forest friends paint signs, one of which eventually reunites the family. "But all good things must come to an end. Cub's parents had to move on-and with them would go Cub." However, "They knew in their hearts that they would meet again-as all good friends must." Purchase where demand for commercial series merits inclusion-or treat your patrons to fresh copies of the older titles.
