Description


Alison Farrell's The Hike meets Richard Scarry's I Am a Bunny in this delightful board book that combines sweetness and science.

Timeless and nostalgic, quirky and fresh, lightly educational and wholly heartfelt, this autobiography of a bear cub will delight all cuddlers and snugglers.

See the world through a bear cub's eyes in this charming book about finding your place in the world. Little cub measures himself up to the other animals in the forest. Compared to a rabbit, he is big. Compared to a chipmunk, he is HUGE. Compared to his mother, he is still a little cub.

The first in a series of board books pairs Kristen Tracy's timeless and nostalgic text with Alison Farrell's sweet, endearing art for an adorable treatment of everyone's favorite topic: baby animals!

PERFECT FOR BEDTIME KISSES: The book goes through a day in the life of a baby bear cub and ends tucked into his den with mama bear. The perfect book to take families through their own day, ending with a cozy goodnight moment!

ENCOURAGES CHILDREN TO IMAGINE OTHER PERSPECTIVES: This book is told in the first person: "I am a cub." This unusual narrator will get the youngest readers thinking about what it's really like to be a little bear cub!

TEACHES COMPARISONS: The idea of seeing through the animal's eyes by comparing themselves to familiar ideas (cub is bigger than rabbit but smaller than mama bear) is a perfect introduction to comparative logic.

Praise For…


“The bear’s breezy, childlike narration is informative . . . Laced throughout the story are tender turns of phrase that make the narrative more intimate . . . Farrell’s loose, languid, full-bleed illustrations appear airy and simple and create a warm and homey feel . . . Bear-y sweet.”-Kirkus Reviews

“A smiling, dot-eyed brown bear cub narrates its life over the course of a year . . . Tracy adds endearing, sensorial touches . . . Farrell contributes cheery, engaging art rendered in gouache, colored pencil, ink, and digital mixed media to this lightly informative, bear-centered board book.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
