Cub knows all about the familiar world in the snow den where she was born. Whenshe follows Mom out of their den, tumblinginto the Arctic wilderness, she finds that the world under the wide blue sky is big, big, BIG It's easy to be curious when there's so much to explore and when Mom is nearby. But when she thinks she's all alone, can Cub be brave? With spare, lyrical words and paintings that are both dramatic and intimate, "Cub's Big World" tells a tender story of new experiences, homecoming, and the love between a parent and child.
