In paperback, by Else Holmelund Minarik
Introduce a new generation of children to Little Bear, the classic, beloved character from Else Holmelund Minarik and Maurice Sendak, with this boxed gift set containing three paperback editions in the series.
Little Bear: Meet Little Bear, a friend to millions of children. And meet Mother Bear, who is there whenever Little Bear needs her. When it is cold and snowy outside, she finds just the right outfit for Little Bear to play in. When he goes to the moon, she has a hot lunch waiting for him on his return. And, of course, she never forgets his birthday.
Father Bear Comes Home: Welcome home, Father Bear! Little Bear’s father is finally coming home from a long fishing trip. Little Bear is very excited to see him—even if he doesn’t bring the toy Little Bear has been hoping for!
Little Bear's Visit: Little Bear likes to visit Grandmother and Grandfather Bear. He likes Grandfather’s hat and Grandmother’s cooking. But most of all, he loves to listen to their stories!
The popularity of Else Holmelund Minarik's I Can Read Books about Little Bear has continued across generations. These timeless classics feature beautiful, detailed illustrations from Maurice Sendak, the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of Where the Wild Things Are.
With short chapters and sweet, appealing stories, the Little Bear stories work well for lap reading or in a classroom or library setting.
