Summary

Copycub loves playing games, especially with his mother Copycub loves to play games, especially hide-and-seek with his mother. The little bear hides in bushes, in dark corners of bear caves, and even in the sticks of a beaver dam. "Can't find me here," calls Copycub. "Oh, yes, I can," exclaims the mother bear. And she finds him every time. One afternoon, while the two bears are exploring in the woods, Copycub remembers a secret place for hiding and runs very deep into the forest. When he calls for his mother to find him, there is no reply. Copycub begins to realize that hiding from his mother isn't always so much fun. It is beginning to grow dark in the forest and there are many strange noises. Copycub is lost! Mother bear has always found her little bear in the past. Will she find him this time, too? Richard Edwards' simple, gentle text is heartwarming and inspiring. All the rich details of nature and the tender interaction between mother bear and cub are made real in Susan Winter's soft watercolor illustrations.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In Always Copycub by Richard Edwards, illus. by Susan Winter, a follow-up to Copy Me, Copycub, it's spring, and the frisky, honey-colored hero discovers the fun of hiding from his mother and calling out, "Can't find me here!" One day, however, he hides too well, and finds himself lost in the forest at night; luckily, his mother locates him once again. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-An appealing sequel to Copy Me, Copycub (HarperCollins, 1999). The soft-toned watercolor pictures portray the cozy relationship between the cub and his mother. Copycub loves to hide from her. Preschoolers will enjoy finding him in the delicately detailed pictures. When the little bear wanders off into the woods in an attempt to find a really good hiding place, he gets lost. In true storybook fashion, his mother finds him just as it is getting dark. He promises not to wander off on his own, but asks, "-if I get lost, will you always come to find me?" "Always," says his mother. Children will relate to this little runaway story and will find the reassuring ending satisfying.-Janet M. Bair, Trumbull Library, CT (c) Copyright 2010.
