"Baby Bear" by Kadir Nelson is a new children book from the author and illustrator that with each new work again inspires young and young at heart readers.

This time in his simply story of young bear who is trying to find his way back home while being helped by his animal friends, the author sends a beautiful message to children about self-esteem, about believing in yourself and in your heart that will surely lead you to the right path and goal of your journey.

It's especially important to emphasize the beauty of book illustrations that are wonderfully presenting the animals - bear, squirrel, fish and others - in their environment that our young hero will encounter while travelling back home, each of them offering advices and help in own special way.

So if you until now haven't been familiar with the work of this young and extremely talented author you can't miss with this or any of his previously published books; with "Baby Bear" Kadir Nelson made a children book about which will be talked about all through the year.

And due to that I wish you to enjoy reading this beautiful and smart book with your child same as I have been doing since yesterday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful in every way! 8 Jan 2014
By Heidi Grange - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The minute I see the name "Kadir Nelson" I have to buy the book. I love his artwork and his books are inevitably wonderful. This one is no different. The story follows a young bear who is lost as he seeks to find his way home. He receives advice from the other animals he meets along the way, each seeking to help him in their own way. From the cougar who tells him to "remember how you got here" to the ram who tells him to sing a song, Baby Bear searches for the way home. A beautiful look at the journey that we all take through life searching for a place to call home and those we meet along the way to help guide us there. A sweet story that can be looked at from many levels of understanding with much that can be discussed and enjoyed. The illustrations are vintage Nelson from the sweet-eyed bear to the grinning salmon and the end pages which depict a night scene giving way to dawn. I think my favorite illustration though is the one with Baby Bear hugging the tree and thinking of home.
3.0 out of 5 stars Had potential. 31 July 2014
By Sue - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this book based on all the great reviews. And, sure, the art is nice. I read it to my kids last night, and frankly the end of the book was a total disappointment. We had such high hopes! At the end, my son was like "Where's his mommy or daddy?", and I had no answer. My daughter was like "where is his home?", I was like, um... not sure. So, it had potential, but honestly, I feel pretty disappointed; we were all left confused at the end!
5.0 out of 5 stars Life Lessons 5 Jun 2014
By C. Curran - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This story is a picture book about a baby bear who is lost in the woods. He runs into different creatures who give him words of widsom on how to find his home, which he eventually does.

This book is not just about a baby bear trying to find his home; it teaches life lessons. For example it talks about it's going within and listening to that inner voice, trusting yourself, when your down "sing a sng-it will make you feel better." as Ram told the bear. In the begining the pictures are dark, like the bear was walking around at nighttime. As he gets closer to his home they lighen up a little, and when the baby bear finally ffinds his home, it looks like it is dawn.

So brilliant!! What a great analogy, to go from night to dawn like that. I love little subtle details like that. Kudos to the artist or having the insight to do that. Needless the say the pictures were gorgeous. My favorite picture is a picture of the baby bear looking outward from the book, the reflection of the full moon is in both his eyes. I would hang this picture on my wall in a flash if I had one to do so.

Below is an exerpt from the book:

"Excuse me, dear Mountain Lion. I'm lost. Can you help me find my way home?

Oh, is that so? Well, Baby Bear, when I am lost I try to retrace my steps. Can you remember how you got here?

Hmm, I wasn't paying attention. But I think it is that way.

Then perhaps you should go that way.

Thank you, dear Lion..

You're welcome, Baby Bear.

(Baby Bear sees a frog)

Excuse me, dear Frog, I am lost. Can you help me find my way home?

Do you mind? I am busy. Says the frog.

But I'm lost and afraid.

Don not be afraid, Baby Bear. Trust yourself. You will find your way home. Now please, if you don't mind...

Thank you, sir. Baby Bear says.

(Baby Bear runs into a moose and asks him for help. The moose says..)

When I am lost, I sit very still and try to listen to my heart. It speaks as softly and as sweetly as a gently breeze. And it is never wrong. It will lead you home. (The next page the baby bear is silently sitting in the woods apparently thinking to himself. On the next page baby bear is crying. A ram hears his cry and offers this advice..)

"Baby Bear, you ar closer than you think, Sing a song- it will make you feel better."

I am not sure if my review really captures the heartwaming feel of the book or not, but it really is a heartwarming story made more powerful by the wonderful pictures.

There really is more to the story, but that is the basic gist of it.

Well, I hope this review helps you. If it does please let Amazon know by clicking on the "Yes" button below. Thank you! And if you decide to buy the book I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
