A story of independence and reassurance from top-selling author-illustrator Nancy Tafuri, three Little Bears explore their forest home, yet never wander too far from the security of their Mama.
One afternoon, Mama is teaching her three Little Bears how to fish. But in a forest full of surprises, the cubs are too curious to stay in one place for very long! Every rock and tree offers a new, exciting discovery, drawing Little Bears further and further away from the river. Yet no matter where they wander, Little Bears are never too far from their Mama's watchful eye.
Nancy Tafuri's trademark watercolor style creates a playful, gentle world for this minimally-worded story of early independence and loving reassurance.
