This is a sweet book for the beginning reader to enjoy. It displays the special bond that many grandparents and grandchildren share with one another. In this short and compact read, Little Bear visits Grandfather Bear and Grandmother Bear for a day filled with good food, fun stories, and playful moments. At the end of his fun day, Little Bear drifts off into a peaceful sleep as his parents return to take him home. The illustrations within the text are sweet and truly show the love between Little Bear and his grandparents. Your little ones will enjoy this book, whether reading it by themselves or sharing it with you. Little Bear¿s Visit is a Caldecott Honor Book and is truly a classic piece of children¿s literature to be shared and enjoyed!

Genre: FantasyReview: The author stays true to the genre of fantasy by creating a story that could not take place in our world. This book follows Little Bear, a talking bear, as he goes to visit his grandparents. While aspects of this book could be true if you swapped out Little Bear for a human, the author did not write it that way.Media: Pencil/Ink and Watercolor

Little Bear has a busy day at Grandma and Grandpa¿s- they have fun together and each grandparent tells him a story. At the end he pretends to sleep, but shows everyone that he was joking and not tired- until he falls asleep for real.
