Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Martin Waddell says, "A picture book story is a script of performance to a very personally involved audience tha twants to stop, ask questions, look, and point things out."

Barbara Firth says, "I have always been biased toward illustrating natural history, so it was a joy to be able to draw pages and pages of bears." She set this story in autumn, "It is my favorite time of year, and the bears' too, I think."

If you liked the other Little Bear/Big Bear books by Martin Waddell, you will love this one too! It's so sweet to read! Little Bear is adventurous,but stays close to Big Bear and asks that he "watch". Big Bear is encouraging and always supporting. When Little Bear slips, Big Bear picks him up and comforts him, but continues to be encouraging. It's a wonderful story of a parent's love- never-ending and always present.

"Once there were two bears, Big Bear and Little Bear. Big Bear is the big bear and Little Bear is the little bear."
Each of these Little Bear books by Martin Waddell opens in this delightfully familiar way. My two-year-old cozies in right beside me in anticipation of the beginning of one of these books (because once you read one, you have to read them all).
In "Good Job, Little Bear", Big Bear encourages Little Bear in all his exploring and yet, when Little Bear makes a mistep, Big Bear is there to help, support, and reassure... Little Bear is able to regain his confidence with the help of Big Bear's sensitive parenting (because, even though he looks like a big bear, he really is just a very good parent).
"Good Job, Little Bear" is a book that will remain behind on my bookshelves as my son grows. In the fine tradition of books that reassure about parental love, Waddell has captured the sentiments of parents around the world. The last line of the book, "I'll be there when you need me... always" gave me a catch in my throat and, I have to admit, a tear in my eye.

This is a really good book for young kids. My 3 year old daughter loves it and laughs hysterically when Little Bear falls in the water. And it has a really sweet, comforting ending which is great right before bed. I also think it is a good length for little ones, not too wordy. I think little ones can really identify with Little Bear and the things he does in this one. Cute book!

I enjoy these character and the lovely artwork. Can't You SLeep, Little Bear? is a powerful story told in a simple fun way. Good Job, Little Bear is more of fun but no deeper subtle meaning in this one a more typical children's tale I'm afraid.

This would have to be my favourite of all the Little Bear, Big Bear stories. My three year old loved hearing about the adventurous little bear, and the relationship between the two bears is so lovingly drawn. I would definitely recommend this book.

I am about to give this book to my daughter as she graduates from College next month! With a lump in my throat I will once again say, "Good Job Little Bear"!
This was a favorite when she was little, and still sits on my shelf.

Simply a sweet book for toddlers and preschoolers. My daughter likes it, however her favorite is Big Bear and little Bear by the same author. It is one of our go to books at bedtime when she is very sleepy. Works like a charm.
