I bought this book for my husband on his first Father's Day. We are both very happy with it. It's short but touching and has beautiful illustrations. For example, one page shows the baby bear and his father sitting on top of a mountain, watching the sun set. The text reads, "I'm as still as still can be, when you're sitting next to me." Another page reads, "I'm the very bravest bear, when I know that you are there." Pretty cute stuff.

It's also very durable. My 10 month old son loves to turn the pages and has even drooled on it a bit. We just wipe it clean, with no problem.

I bought this book to be "from" my daughter to her father for Christmas. The text inside doesn't mention whether Little Bear is a boy or girl, but the back cover states that "When Little Bear is with his daddy, he is..." So I took a permanent marker and turned his into her and he into she!

It's frustrating because there's no reason to have that on the cover when the story is absolutely neutral and lovely.

There is something uniquely timeless about the message this book conveys through the very few words it uses. Seen from a child's eyes and mind, moments that a child spends with its father mean a lot. It's a short book, no doubt, but the message it chooses must surely resonate with every child who is lucky to have a father and every father who is lucky to be with their child. It doesn't say whether the baby bear is speaking in the voice of a boy or girl. Somehow, it doesn't seem to matter. There are single dads out there and single moms too and children might rarely view themselves first as a boy or a girl. To them, being their daddy's child might mean a lot more. Reading this book with my son and enjoying the simple act of being together with him, engaged in his moments, was pure joy.

I'm a FTM and I got this book for my husband for Christmas. He loves it and I think it'll be great for a book for him to read to the baby. The illustrations are great and there is plenty of dead space on the large, cardboard/laminated pages for the baby to chew. I foresee many hours of bonding over this book ahead :)

We have so many "mommy and me" books and my husband was tired of reading them to our son. He was so happy to get a book about daddys. Our son even loves to read this book too (he's 21 months). As most kids books are, it's a VERY basic story and very simple pictures with not to much detail...but enough deatil where we can point out a few things in the picture to help with additional learning/object recognition (i.e. Tree, rock, water, birds). This book was a huge hit in our house.

This was the perfect first Father's Day gift! The pages aren't as thick as a traditional board book, but are still made of sturdy cardboard. It is only about 6-8 pages long, but the perfect length for a young baby. Illustrations show a little baby bear playing with his daddy and the words are sweet - even caused daddy to shed a few tears. I'd call that a success!

I LOVE THIS BOOK. It's so nice! It's for my brother to read to my niece. Of course, she's a baby and he reads to her every night before she goes to sleep. This book is precious. It's a Christmas gift for them.
