Summary

Summary

Little Bear and his parents are familiar to almost all beginning readers. And now beginning readers meet Grandmother and Grandfather Bear, whom they are sure to love as much as Little Bear does.

Like all children, Little Bear loves to visit his grandparents. There is always so much to do, so much to see, and so much to eat. His grandfather is never too tired to play (that is, almost never) and his grandmother tells him stories about Mother Bear when she was a little cub. Also, like all grandparents, the elder bears indulge their grandson more than his parents do. And Little Bear enjoys that!

This account of a truly perfect day will enchant beginning readers. Once again Else Holmelund Minark and Maurice Sendak have created a warm and tender world.

She worked as reporter for the Daily Sentinel before becoming a first grade teacher and recognized the need for children's books with simple words. Her first book, Little Bear, was published in 1957 with illustrations by Maurice Sendak. She wrote over 40 children's books during her lifetime including No Fighting, No Biting!, Little Bear's Visit, The Little Giant Girl and the Elf Boy, A Kiss for Little Bear, Percy and the Five Houses, and Little Bear and the Marco Polo. She died of complications from a recent heart attack on July 12, 2012 at the age of 91.
