She married Walter Minarik and wrote and illustrated the first Little Bear story for their daughter, Brooke, to read before she went to school.

I think the other reviewers have said it all when it comes to the gentle story and the excellent illustrations. This book is awesome!! I have no complaints at all. The one thing that I would add is that this story is also peppered with advanced vocabulary that is a useful challenge for my little child. I made flashcards of the words he stumbled with and we review them as a game, which he loves. I have found that, after accumulating a large library, most of the books for this age group use the same, easy words, which really limits the complexity of the story or the sense of accomplishment for the child after successfully finishing the book. This book is a nice exception and one that I would keep for the long haul.

Little Bear was a favorite of my son's. He used to ask my grandmother to read the stories to him, over and over. Eventually he learned to read, and he was able to read them to her. The copy that they read together was the one that her mother, (my great grandmother,) read to me.
When I was older, we had an exchange student from Spain, join our family. Her family became part of our family, and we became part of hers. For the last 25 years we have shared in each others lives, and when my parents traveled to Spain this year, I sent this book with them, for her children.
The book is the perfect size for large or small hands. It is in a good font for reading. I liked the softcover for packing and traveling, as well as functionality. It arrived quickly with no issues. I will buy from this vendor again .

My two and a half year old son loves this book. It contains four short stories: What Will Little Bear Wear, Birthday Soup, Little Bear Goes to the Moon, and Little Bear's Wish. We keep it by his bedside and he frequently asks if we can read, "Little Bear in the snow?" or "Little Bear goes to the moon?" Sometimes he suckers me and I read the whole book to him before nap/bedtime. He loves the illustrations on every page, and I love that the story structure is simple enough that he can later learn to read with this book.

I read Little Bear when I was younger and I'm happy to share it with the next generation in our family, and hopefully the generations to come!

I was expecting this to be a miniature chapter books as the other four original Little Bear books are. However, this is just one short story about Little Bear receiving a kiss for some art he created. My daughter was thrilled to see another Little Bear book, but even she was disappointed by the length. She was excited, however, to see some old friends like Lucy and Emily at the end of the story. It was cute, but too short for me to give full stars.

The best of Little Bear, in my opinion. There are four stories, "What Will Little Bear Wear?", "Birthday Soup", "Little Bear Goes to the Moon", and "Little Bear's Wish." They are sweet, calm little stories that make a perfect bedtime read. Little Bear is perfectly relatable to any non-bear child, and yet there is just the right amount of whimsy and imagination to captivate little readers/listeners. Nowadays, its so easy for a young child to become overstimulated with TV and toys; its nice to know that you can push out the loud, noisy world and enjoy the quiet serenity of a Little Bear book when you need to.

I love this book, but then that was no surprise for me, because had I read it to my own (now grown) children when they were small. The wording, the story itself, and the illustrations are totally delightful, and work together beautifully. A very enjoyable and comforting book for little ones.

My mother read HER copy of this book to me when I was little and it is emblazoned on my mind. Imaginative, warm, sweet stories with a Mother Bear we would all love to have. I read my mother's copy to my son and hope he'll read it to his kids someday. No child's room is complete without it!
This is my very first book as a child and I read it again and again. I kept it all throughout my teenage years. Somehow, I was separated from it when I left home. I've been thinking about it on and off over the years, still missing it and telling friends about it who had small children. My husband advised me to go ahead and buy it. Why hadn't I thought of that? Now I have it back. Though it isn't my original hardcover edition that held up to my frequent handling, I will be careful with this paperback copy and cherish the memories it brought to me as a child.
