From Margaret Wise Brown, the author of the beloved classic, Goodnight Moon, here are four never before published poems, illustrated with stunning gouache paintings by Susan Jeffers. Celebrating the profound in everyday moments and simple things, these poems combine to tell the sweet and tender tale of a well-loved little bear. Follow him through the seasons of the year, as he experiences the wonders of the world for the first time.

Together, Brown and Jeffers have created an ode to the power of parental love and the ways in which it carries a child through the joys of discovery.
