A glorious celebration of wildlife and the special bond between mother and child.

Baby Bear meets all sorts of different animals until he finally finds what he is looking for - his mother. Told through Bill Martin's rhythmic text and Eric Carle's vibrant images, this is the fourth companion title to the much-loved classic Brown Bear Brown Bear, What Do You See?

'The natural history is a source for smiles, the illustrations in collage and paint are little works of art' The Times Educational Supplement 'Carle's books all have an educational element -- they teach about animals, numbers, colours and nature -- but a big part of their appeal is that they are not didactic or laboured, but light and entertaining. There's warmth and humour there too' Junior

Eric Carle

Eric Carle is acclaimed and beloved as the creator of brilliantly illustrated and innovatively designed picture books for very young children. His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar , has eaten its way into the hearts of literally millions of children all over the world and has been translated into more than 25 languages and sold over twelve million copies. Since the Caterpillar was published in 1969, Eric Carle has illustrated more than sixty books, many best sellers, most of which he also wrote.

Eric Carle's art is distinctive and instantly recognizable. His art work is created in collage technique, using hand-painted papers, which he cuts and layers to form bright and cheerful images. Many of his books have an added dimension - die-cut pages, twinkling lights as in The Very Lonely Firefly, even the lifelike sound of a cricket's song as in The Very Quiet Cricket, - giving them a playful quality: a toy that can be read, a book that can be touched. Children also enjoy working in collage and many send him pictures they have made themselves, inspired by his illustrations. He receives hundreds of letters each week from his young admirers. The secret of Eric Carle's books' appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.

Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.
