PreS. Little Bear loves rowing, fishing, and floating in his little rowboat. Then he begins to grow, and one day his new heft sinks the boat. His mother calms him: "It is a little bear's destiny to grow and grow till he is a BIG BEAR. It is a little boat's destiny to stay the same size." Bear is sad, and he worries that no one will love his boat now that he can no longer fit into it. All ends happily, though, when Bear decides to bequeath the boat to another Little Bear, repeating his mother's warning: little bears become big bears, and the boat must eventually be passed on. Surprisingly few stories touch on the nostalgia and fear a new stage of childhood can bring. With just a few sentences per page, this is a sensitive, affecting story about growing up and leaving favorite things behind, with charming ink-and-paint illustrations that echo the spare clarity of the words. Reassuring and well told. Gillian Engberg
