Praise For Cub's Big World…
"The suspense is toddler-perfect, with Mom appearing the moment it all become's too much. . . Lap-sit ready, with a built-in hug at the end."
—The Horn Book Magazine
"Thomson's calm voice makes it clear that Mom's absence is only temporary, so readers can snuggle up and relish this big polar world, gorgeously and inventively imagined."
"A great deal of warmth permeates this lovely story of the cold arctic and a polar bear cub's first exploration outside the cave in which he was born. . . A nice addition to collections for the youngest tots."
"Vivid but not flowery, gentle but exciting, Thomson's measured voice expertly captures the wonder and fear of a young child exploring unfamiliar territory alone. . . . Cub's Big World is a big must-have."
—School Library Journal
