What You Need to Know:
• This is a sweet picture book about friendship and caring.
• This is for the very youngest reader.
• The author/illustrator is a designer and it shows in the spare, gorgeous illustrations.
• This is the second book of three in the Thank You, Bear series. I have just discovered this series, so look for the

Sweet Book Summary:
Little bear and caterpillar are friends. One day little bear finds caterpillar quite busy, making a cocoon. Caterpillar explains that he is going to be inside for a while, but bear will see him again. Bear worries, he worries when it rains, he worries when the wind howls, he worries his friend caterpillar will not be ok. Just when caterpillar reassures bear, and he stops worrying, he arrives to find the cocoon is empty. Bear worries all over again, until a beautiful silk moth lands on his paw and reassures him yet again.

The illustrations are so simple and beautiful and bear is so cuddly and appealing. The story is also quite simple, with nice repetition, for it's intended audience - the very young. This is a wonderful story of friendship. It would also make a nice literature companion to a science unit studying caterpillars, as young classes are known to do.
