A book to inspire children to look for treasures in the great outdoors, where everyday objects take on new, magical meanings with a little imagination.
"Alive with modest wonder--a treasure."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Little Bear is a treasure finder. And he finds the most wonderful things: a shiny button, a tickly feather, a cozy hiding place, a tree to scratch, and even a shy, soft piece of lint. The other animals, however, don't understand Little Bear's treasures. "Just junk," they say. Except for one... When Little Bear meets Little Bird, it's the beginning of a wonderful friendship. Together, Little Bear just might discover his best treasure yet.
Poetic, affectionate, funny, and captivatingly illustrated, this gorgeous picture book is a treasure itself.
