"Little Bear's Baby Brother is the charming tale of an excited older sister who fashions the perfect gift for her new baby brother. And she's not the only one to think so--the forest denizens each find her mobile and use it in their own turn, until it finally makes its way back to its intended recipient. McCue, now thoroughly well known for the furry likes of Cork and Fuzz, Quiet Bunny and Corduroy, brings readers a forest community of cute and cuddly characters, each brimming with personality. This series may remind readers of Paulette Bourgeois' Franklin. . . Sweet and comforting, as intended." --Kirkus Reviews
