About Big Bear and Little Fish
At the carnival, Bear wants a teddy bear. And not just any teddy bear--she wants the biggest one of all.
But instead she gets a fish. A very small fish. Bear is so very big and Fish is so very small that Bear worries they have nothing in common. Can they possibly be friends?
Gentle, accessible prose by Sandra Nickel is paired with richly textured illustrations by Il Sung Na in this sweet story of unexpected friendship.
