Synopsis

Little Bear Is Back!

The star of books, television, and video is joined by Mother and Father Bear, Hen, Cat, Duck, and Owl in an exciting new adventure.

On his very first camping trip, Little Bear makes a new friend -- Cub. Cub is a wild bear who lives in the woods. Together they explore the valleys, streams, and waterfalls that Cub knows so well. Their journey through the woods is full of excitement, including a scary adventure for Little Bear and a happy surprise for Cub.

Friendship and bravery are at the heart of this exciting new story that reunites fans of the original I Can Read books with those who love the hit animated television show starring their favorite bear.

Written by Else Holmelund Minarik, the author of the five original Little Bear books, and illustrated by Heather Green, this is the first full-color picture book featuring the enduring character of Little Bear.
