Little Bear, Baby Bear

­Cameron. Oct. 2022. 22p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781951836634.
Baby-Toddler–A series of appealing spot illustrations in bright, flat colors juxtaposes the title characters, evocative of a young child and a baby sibling, and explores the differences between the two. Each pair of facing pages contrasts Little Bear’s belongings (a toy car, an apple) with corresponding items for Baby Bear (a teething ring, a feeding bottle). The introduction of Big Bear at the conclusion will remind children identifying with Little Bear that they can still see themselves as small, even as they celebrate the ways they have grown up.
VERDICT An important purchase for all collections.
