Happy Fathers' Day!
Happy Fathers' Day! To honor fathers today I wanted to share this series of gentle, lovely books by Martin Waddell, with illustrations by Barbara Firth. Little Bear is your typical exuberant toddler who (in various books) can't sleep, wants to help, and loves to explore. Big Bear is the epitome of parental devotion and care who reassures, cheers on, and guides his charge through their days. The soft watercolor illustrations makes these books perfect for quiet times, and their reassuring emotional message, "I'm here for you", makes them perfect for our children at any time.
