Little Bear's Spring

Elli Woolard

Illustrated by Briony May Smith

Copies of this book will be in all EYFS classes.

Little Bear's Spring is a breathtakingly beautiful story about a little bear, an unlikely friendship and how the coming of springtime can change everything.

Little Bear has just woken up from his long winter sleep. But when he pokes his head out of the den, the world around him is vast, white and silent. The only thing he sees is a smooth little stone, just as alone in the snowy wilderness as he is. He nestles it in tight to his fur and off they go in search of friends.

Little Bear's Spring is a lyrical story about friendship, with a gentle introduction to spring and what happens to the natural world when the seasons change. Written by star picture book author Elli Woollard and illustrated by Briony May Smith, whose artwork brings a sun-dappled springtime landscape to life with breathtaking beauty.
