Walker Books – A Brave Bear (Picture Book – Sean Taylor)

What is the bravest thing in the world? A brave bear, of course! And who is the best at helping a little bear be brave? His dad, of course!

In this joyful story about children and their parents from the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise and the illustrator of Wild, a daddy bear and a baby bear spend a very special day together. It’s as hot as hot can be, and Dad Bear says, “I think a pair of hot bears is probably the hottest thing in the world.” So Little Bear suggests that they go to the river to cool down. But what will happen when Little Bear tries to impress his dad by doing a big jump across the rocks? The perfect present for Daddy Bear and Baby Bears alike, all readers will rejoice in the gorgeous characterization, the warmth of the storytelling and the deliciously detailed artwork of illustration star, Emily Hughes.


“A daddy and baby bear spend a very special day together in this gentle, joyful story about children and parents. Hughes’ lush illustrations create great warmth and character.” – Bookseller

“This is one of those books that leaves you with a warm inner glow. The parent-child relation (attentive adult allowing the offspring to be a risk-taker) is beautifully portrayed both verbally and in Emily Hughes glowing, superbly textured scenes into which she places the shaggy-coated characters. A truly felicitous author/illustrator partnership if ever there was one and a picture book to be read over and over and…” – Red Reading Hub
