I remember the Little Bear books fondly, but not from my childhood. Perhaps from reading them to children I was babysitting. This is a typically gentle story with two short embedded tales. ( )

Little Bear's Visit is a delightfully illustrated early reader story about Little Bear as he goes and visits his grandparents home and learns stories about his mother. Else Minarik's Little Bear series holds a place in many hearts as it's one of the first books many of us learn to read with. The combination of heart and imagination (and the wonderful pictures by Maurice Sendak), Little Bear gently welcomed us into reading. Little Bear's Visit won a Randolph Caldecott Medal Award for literature.
