Publisher Description:

The acclaimed tale of a lost little bear searching for home from Caldecott Medalist and Coretta Scott King Award winner Kadir Nelson.

Baby Bear is lost and afraid. All the other animals try to help:
Trust yourself.
Sing a song.
Retrace your steps.

As Baby Bear gains courage with every step, he realizes he was never far from home after all.

With poetic text and stunning illustrations, Baby Bear is an impressive addition to the canon of timeless picture book classics.

Kadir Nelson's acclaimed books include The Undefeated, winner of the Caldecott Medal as the most distinguished picture book of the year, Heart and Soul: The Story of America and African Americans, and Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom.
