The book

A children’s tale about the beginnings of life. One spring, waking from a long winter sleep, a young bear finds himself longing for a family of his own. But how to get one? He asks advice from an array of animal friends, but none of them really seems to know. Then he meets a female bear and things look as if they may be heading in the right direction. Erlbruch’s moving illustrations animate this tasteful story with all the colors of plentiful springtime. A lovely and affecting book that will help introduce children to the wonders of new life.
