Here are four stories about Little Bear and his mother, who is always there when Little Bear needs her. Beginning readers will feel a great sense of accomplishment reading each story by themselves, and will enjoy Little Bear s adventures - flying to the moon, making birthday soup, and wishing for the impossible. Minarik, formerly a first-grade teacher, has captured the essence of little children perfectly in this funny, warm, and tender classic.
In 1957, Harper published its first I Can Read title, Little Bear, written by Else Holmelund Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Large type, simple vocabulary, chapter-like divisions, and decorative pictures made Little Bear perfect for emerging readers they could read the story comfortably and not feel overwhelmed by the text. Now, begining Hebrew readers can enjoy these same classics - no matter what their age!
