But when Old Bear catches a cold, it's Little Cub who knows just what to do to make Old Bear feel better.

Amazon Best Books of the Month, November 2010: Beautiful wintery illustrations are the perfect background for Old Bear and His Cub. Old Bear and Little Cub love each other with all of their hearts, and their day together revolves around Old Bear ensuring that Little Cub does things that will keep him safe and healthy, like eating his porridge and staying off the rocks. Children will relate to Little Cub’s attempts at independence, while parents will appreciate that Little Cub accepts Old Bear’s authority simply because Old Bear loves him so. The tables are turned when Old Bear catches a cold and it's Little Cub who knows what's best--blackberry tea and books read aloud all through the night. Simple and charming, Old Bear and His Cub is a heart-warming reminder of the joys of caring for one another. --Seira Wilson
