Summary

Summary

The children, parents, teachers, and librarians who so joyously welcomed Little Bear, the first I Can Read Book by this author and artist, will greet the return of these favorite characters with true delight.

Little Bear, his mother, and his friends have taken their places beside such other beloved animals of fiction as Winnie-the-Pooh, Peter Rabbit, and Mole. And now Father Bear--large, amiable, and completely fatherly--returns from a fishing trip and joins his family. Beginning readers will love reading about his marvelous homecoming. They will roar with laughter over his method of banishing hiccups, and they will agree wholeheartedly with his views on mermaids.

The popularity of Else Holmelund Minarik's I Can Read Books has been well established. Children reading Father Bear Comes Home will find that it lives up to their highest expectations.
