This little bear is SO BIG! He can get dressed, make cereal for breakfast, and pack his backpack—all by himself. In fact, he’s so big that he’s ready for his first day of school! But the school bus is also so BIG. And the school is even BIGGER! Maybe it’s even TOO big! Just when it all feels like too much, this little bear meets a new friend and together they find courage big enough to push past their fear.
Perfect for the youngest readers ready to start school, this sweet story shows that even when big worries make you feel very small, a friend can help things feel just right.
