Little Bear wants to be BIG, but Big Bear loves him just the way he is.
Now available as a special 15th Anniversary edition!
Iʼd like to do another book about Polar Bears one day because they have such beautiful fur, and ENORMOUS feet.The babiesʼ bottoms are so round, they look as if they have nappies on!
Last time I read this to a bunch of kids, they had a spontaneous group hug when the final ʻBig Cuddleʼ scene was revealed!
