Sailor Bear

Rating
New or Used: $7.05
Small bear is lost and does not know what to do. He thinks and thinks and he looks at his sailor suit and he decides to be a sailor and sail on the sea. He makes a boat from some pieces of wood and he finds a sea small enough for a small bear and he sails off by the light of the moon. But the sea grows too rough and Bear's boat rocks and rolls and shatters and sinks. Small Bear is shipwrecked on the shore and lies shivering and cold, until next morning when a small girl finds him. She hugs him and takes him home and sets him by the fire to dry. Now Small Bear knows what to do. He'll stay where he is with his new friend and never go to sea again. Martin Waddell has also written "Can't You Sleep, Little Bear?"

Reviews

Small Bear is rescued just in time from a soggy adventure at sea; PW called this a "classic, comforting bedtime story." Ages 3-up. (Feb.)

PreS-- A teddy named Small Bear, ``who was lost and had no one to play with,'' wonders what to do and, inspired by his sailor suit, builds a boat and goes to sea. Since he has a small boat, he needs a small sea, and finds one in the park. When a storm comes up, he is shipwrecked on the rocks, where he is discovered by a little girl who takes him home. There he decides, a la ``Corduroy,'' that ``I'm FOUND, and I have someone to play with, so I'll stay where I am!'' The simple, rhythmic text is accompanied by pencil and wash illustrations that convincingly show Small Bear's curiosity and perseverance. An additional purchase for active picture book collections. --Caroline Parr, Central Rappahannock Regional Library, Fredericksburg, VA
