In the delicately illustrated pages of this black and white picture book, debut author/illustrator Jo Weaver gives readers the personal journey of a mother bear and her cub traveling through the seasons of the year.

Big Bear is a gentle guide and teacher as her Little One sees, hears, and experiences life for the first time. The two explore the forests, rivers, lakes, and everything in them. From the awakening of spring to the falling of heavy snowflakes, Big Bear shows her curious cub many of the joys and surprises of the wide world.

Through the stunning charcoal artwork and simple yet lyrical language, Jo Weaver reveals the wonder of nature, the first steps of independence, and the strength of parental love.

Little One is a thoughtful tale of discovery, and we are eagerly awaiting its release date, March 1st. Put it on your GoodReads list  for this year, and look for your own copy this spring!
