Little Bear's Spring

Little Bear's Spring

Elli Woollard
Macmillan Children's Books
ISBN: 9781509807901

Little Bear's Spring is a gorgeous reminder of changing seasons and how spring will see the world brought back to life again. Little Bear wakes up from hibernation and wanders off on his own, meeting birds, hares and wolves on his journey. He carries a little stone with him to keep him company which, eventually, hatches into a little chick.

This is a lovely story to share with young children aged 3+, its lovely rhyming verse and gentle, colourful pictures are full of adventure and, as spring really blossoms, joy.

Children can be encouraged to spot the changing temperatures on each page as the snow begins to melt, until the final glorious spreads of colour as spring finally arrives in earnest.

There are also animals to explore - birds building nests (Little Bear has a go too), hares leaping through the snow, and wolves - looking for food!

This can be used alongside lessons on the seasons and hibernation, animal habitats, or just as a gentle story to share with young children.

Picture book / Ages 3+ / Reviewed by Ellen Green.
