Can You See A Little Bear?

By James Mayhew
Illustrated by Jackie Morris

Join Little Bear for a day of adventures meeting lions and peacocks, crocodiles and kookaburras, camels and dolphins, on an amazing journey before bedtime.

Where is Little Bear? In this charming look-and-find book, highlighted by Jackie Morris’s gorgeous animal fantasies, very young children explore theatrical and circus settings as they attempt to find the missing cub. The concepts of opposites, colours and contrasts are introduced in the read-aloud nursery verse and simple clues and vivid word images help children discover Little Bear, whether he is trying on a hat, standing on his head or floating in a balloon. Gradually Little Bear moves into a more familiar landscape of tea, bath and bedtime, a cue for little bears’ bedtimes everywhere.
