Little ones grow up so fast. I know to them it is never fast enough but for a Mother the time goes by in a heartbeat.

How wonderful that the Mother Bear keeps telling her son that "You did your best. I love you just the same!"

A cute story about patience and perseverance stressing to children that things come in time. Story was cute, but illustrations were somewhat plain.

This is a sweet little book with a nice message about how some things take time and even if you try and fail, Mommy always loves you. :)

This was very sweet and the message is just as the title says. I like that the mother shows the cub, lets him try and accepts his failure with telling him someday he'll be big enough, etc. Then, the next year when he can do all she has taught him she says she loves him just the same even though he isn't little anymore. It is a good book to read to read to all my children because the oldest (8) needs to hear she is loved even though she isn't little and cute (in the childish way) anymore.
Mama Bear loves Little Bear when he can't do much and when he can do a lot. That's the way mothers are.
