When spring arrives Big Bear leads her cub out into the world to teach Little One everything needed to survive—which animals are friendly, how to fish, how to swim, which berries to eat. The two journey through their world all spring and through the summer, finally circling back to their den as the snow starts to fall in order to curl up together and hibernate for the long winter ahead. Debut author/illustrator Jo Weaver shows an impressive talent for drawing realistic animals with just a touch of humanization to accentuate the close mother–child bond. Her accomplished soft charcoal drawings fill each page with beautifully rendered portraits of the natural world. (Ages 2–5)
