Like all children, Little Bear loves to visit his grandparents. There is always so much to do, so much to see, and so much to eat. His grandfather is never too tired to play (that is, almost never) and his grandmother tells him stories about Mother Bear when she was a little cub. Also, like all grandparents, the elder bears indulge their grandson more than his parents do. And Little Bear enjoys that!
This account of a truly perfect day will enchant beginning readers. Once again Else Holmelund Minarik and Maurice Sednak have created a warm and tender world. Recommended for ages 4 to 6. A 1962 Caldecott Honor book.
