Why is it that Little Bear seems to be too small or too big for everything? Little Bear is excited to do so many things! He rushes into the kitchen to have his breakfast, but he finds he is too small to cut his food without Mama Bear's help. He is too big to nap in his little bed, but too small to reach Dad's cell phone on the table. Every child will relate to Little Bear's predicament, and laugh along with this touching, amusing tale.


 Praise for the first two Little Bear books; "We all make mistakes, just like Little Bear. He worries. [But] Mama tells Little Bear she'll always love him. No matter what." —Imagination SoupThis tender story about the introduction of a new sibling is the perfect book to share with new big brothers and sisters . . . . A tender, loving addition to new baby collections." —Mary Hazelton, School Library Journal "The message of acceptance and love abounds in the text and illustrations. The beautiful illustrations showcase the various emotions and expressions felt by members of a growing family." —Mary Napoli, "A lovely story with equally embraceable illustrations, this book captures some of the difficulties older siblings have when making room for a new child in the home." —Kendal Rautzhan, Books to Borrow, Books to Buy

"The fact that Martin himself has led his parents to recognize their less-than-stellar parenting provides empowerment for little ones. From the start, the droll, humorous illustrations keep everything light. Martin's facial expressions and body language never miss a beat . . . Old dilemma; fresh take." —Kirkus Reviews
