Even the smallest readers can have big fun with Bear in this sweet introduction to opposites from the New York Times bestselling creators of Bear’s New Friend.  

Bear is big, big, big, and mouse is small, small, small but these friends stick together through all the highs and lows! 

Join Bear and mouse as they spot all the opposites in their little glen. Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman team up again to bring the youngest Bear fans a delightful concept book that begs to be read out loud.

A great introduction to opposites, and comparing. With repetitive words, rhyming, and adorable woodland animal illustrations, young readers will enjoy learning about opposites from Bear, Mouse, and a few of their friends. What a fun read out loud picture book!

We really enjoyed this book. The illustrations, and color scheme are perfect for capturing young readers attentions, as they learn opposites like; big to small, fast to slow, loud and quiet, and more. I liked how the author and illustrator making learning fun, in the form of a picture book we'd definitely recommend picking up. It's the perfect length book for short attention spans. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
