Let’s go home, Little Bear

Written by Martin Waddell
Illustrated by Barbara Firth

Suitable for: 0-5 years

Available braille grades: Grade 1, Grade 2

Little Bear is walking back through the snowy woods when…plod, plod, plod, he hears a noise that makes him shiver. Suddenly, the woods is a scary place with unseen Plodders and Drippers. Luckily, Big Bear is at hand, and relieves his friend’s worries until they get back to their cave.

Listen to an audio clip

Feel just below his head. These two bumps are his two front paws, which are resting on top of Big Bear's head.
I'm sure you won't be surprised to know that Big Bear's eyes, snout and ears are all bigger than Little Bear's. See if you can feel Big Bear's face underneath little Bear's front paws. . . .
Move to either side of Big Bear's snout and you will feel two lumps below his ears. Those are Little Bear's back feet. Do you remember, he's sitting on Big Bear's shoulders? So his back feet are poking forward for you to feel.
