Cover: Big Bear and Little Fish
  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 2

Friendship comes in all sizes. At the carnival, Bear wants to win a teddy bear as big as she is. Instead, she gets a fish. A very little fish. Bear is so very big and Fish is so very small that Bear worries they have nothing in common. With the help of Fish, Bear learns that although she and Fish are different, they are also a little the same.

Gentle, accessible prose by Sandra Nickel is paired with richly textured illustrations by Il Sung Na in this sweet story about accepting others for who they are.

Big Bear and Little Fish was named a Charlotte Huck Award Recommended Book by the National Council of Teachers of English. The Charlotte Huck Award recognizes fiction that has the “potential to transform children’s lives by inviting compassion, imagination, and wonder.”
