Enter the world of Little Bear. Children will be entranced by Little Bear’s trip to the moon, his birthday party, and his wishes and adventures.
This is the first of the five classic books about Little Bear, introducing the funny and strikingly childlike bear cub and his friends. The combination of Else Holmelund Minarik’s simple, yet eloquent, stories and Maurice Sendak’s warm, tender illustrations have made this beloved character an enduring favorite among beginning readers.

How could anyone resist cute Little Bear? I sure couldn’t. Undoubtedly I was Little Bear’s biggest fan. His gentle and loving nature won my heart. He treated his parents and grandparents with great affection. He was a great friend to Emily, Owl, Duck and Hen.

The stories are full of imagination, subtle humor and celebrations. The pals would explore, play games and share time together the way friends and family do.

Any child or adult will be smitten with Little Bear and his antics. The illustrations add to the entire experience. Wonderful book I hope you are all able to experience.
