The confused yet lovable star of When Will It Be Spring? returns in another sweet story of misunderstandings. Alfie has a new baby brother and sister who are too little to leave the cave. The bear cub wants to show them a bit of their beautiful mountain home. But Mother Bear says that the rocks, sticks, and enormous trout he brings for them to play with aren't good toys for babies. Poor Alfie is sure he can't get anything right until Mother Bear points out that the best toy of all may be a big brother.

Blending an affectionate family story, a touch of nature appreciation, and gorgeous scenes of a northern wilderness, Catherine Walters has created another perfect book for laptime sharing.
