Sean Taylor’s simple story about a bear cub and his father hiking to the river to cool off on a hot day retains all of its simple charm in translation. The cub is eager to show off his skills jumping over rocks on but he falls and and wants to turn back. His father gently encourages him and he bravely tries again. Emily Hughes’ stunning illustrations beautifully convey the cub’s wobbly confidence and his father’s gentle encouragement. An excellent choice for pre-schoolers learning to take risks and the importance of carrying on.
