Learning to care for the environment
This story looks at the issues of growing up by giving the child symbols to emulate, even with the understanding that they may still feel a little scared. This picture book version of ‘A Bear’s Story’, helps children to realise that they are not alone in being scared and that sometimes they must overcome that fear because other people are relying on them.
The outline of the story is that Big Brown Bear finds himself in the position of having to deal with a situation that is bigger than he has ever faced in his life before. He overcomes his fears by remembering a very important lesson that he learned when he was still very young....
Brown Bear remembered something his mother had told him after the accident.
“When you have a big problem, just think bigger!” she said.
This book also contains beautiful images of the baby bear growing up, and images of him with his mother, these are images that the children love. It also gives them a positive vibe to head off to sleep with, which as a parent feels good in assisting the child to have a good night’s sleep.
