About the Book

Welcome home, Father Bear! Little Bear’s father is finally coming home from a long fishing trip. Little Bear is very excited to see him—even if he doesn’t bring the toy Little Bear has been hoping for!

Little Bear, his family, and his friends have taken their places beside such other beloved animals of fiction as Winnie-the-Pooh, Peter Rabbit, and Mole. Beginning readers will enjoy reading about the adventures of Little Bear as he goes fishing, gets the hiccups, looks for a mermaid, and welcomes Father Bear home from the sea. 

The popularity of Else Holmelund Minarik's I Can Read Books about Little Bear has continued across generations. These timeless classics feature beautiful, detailed illustrations from Maurice Sendak, the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of Where the Wild Things Are.

With short chapters and sweet, appealing stories, the Little Bear stories work well for lap reading or in a classroom or library setting. And Father Bear Comes Home is especially nice for dads and kids to share together, on Father's Day or any day.
