Big Bear Little Bear 

cover - Big Bear Little BearIllustrated by Jane Chapman
Published by Little Tiger Press

When Little Bear wonders playfully what it will be like when he’s grown-up, his mother takes him on an adventure to show him. Riding high on his mother’s shoulders, racing fast with her across the snow, and holding tight as she swims through icy waters, Little Bear decides that being grown-up is like touching the sky, flying like a bird, and exploring the wonder of the world around him. Then he discovers that being small and cared for has its own rewards.
