Description

A little bear cub explores the world with its mother and discovers many huge and wonderful things. But in answer to the question 'Is that the biggest thing in the world?' the answer is always 'no'. At the end of the day, little bear wants to know what the biggest thing really is and finds out that it is love. This reassuring picture book stars an adorable cast of wide-eyed animals, illustrated by Melanie Mitchell, which are sure to appeal to children and the grown-ups who share this story with them. Scottish author Kenneth Steven is the author of "The Sea Mice" and the "Stars", a picture book which was chosen as the runner up in the inaugural 2005 Royal Mail Awards for Scottish Children's Books. 'Those of you, who enjoyed 'Guess How Much I Love You' by Sam McBratney, will certainly enjoy this delightful story from Scottish author Kenneth Steven. It tells of the little snow bear, who waking from hibernation, sets out to explore the world. He discovers many things, but the one persistent question he asks his mother is, if what he sees is 'the biggest thing in the world?' Of course the answer is revealed on the final fold out page which shows him tucked up safely with her. It is beautifully illustrated by Melanie Mitchell.' First Fiveshow more
