Publisher's Description

From Kadir Nelson, winner of the Caldecott Honor and the Coretta Scott King Author and Illustrator Awards, comes a transcendent picture book in the tradition of Margaret Wise Brown about a lost little bear searching for home.

This simple story works on so many levels: as the tale of a bear who finds his way home with the help of his animal friends; as a reassuring way to show children how to comfort themselves and find their way in everyday life; and on a more philosophical level, as a method of teaching readers that by listening to your heart and trusting yourself, you will always find a true home within yourself—and that even when it feels like you are alone, you never really are.

Editorial Reviews

“In Nelson’s hands, the natural world is enviably ruled by kind intentions and respect.”
“A final picture book, filled with moody, sumptuous paintings, evokes the feelings of trust and vulnerability that small children are liable to experience in a world so much bigger than they are.”
“The award-winning Nelson turns from nuanced treatments of historical subjects to this exploration of a classic preschool trope: a lost animal’s search for home. . . . Resonant.”
“Nelson builds his tale on the simplest bedtime-story scaffolding: a bear cub loses its way home and asks other forest animals for help. What distinguishes Nelson’s creation is an atmosphere of loving-kindness and the affirmation of Baby Bear’s ability to make the journey alone.”
“Nelson’s luscious oils on canvas are as breathtaking as ever, and his superb, almost life-sized, depictions of these creatures in their natural environment hold a wonder of their own.”
“Kadir Nelson’s exquisitely understated picture book charts a bear cub’s journey to find his home, with helpful advice from his fellow woodland creatures.”
