Mother Bear reading a bedtime story to Little Bear.
Maurice Sendak is the Creator and Illustrator of Little Bear.
Little Bear is a MUST in the house. I have them all recorded on our DVR. It started out being the only show Olivia would watch. When she was sick I would sit and hold her and watch Little Bear for hours. I am not talking about a few hours but all day long. Luckily for us Little Bear is really fun to watch and the family fell inlove with all the characters. Olivia is all better and we still watch it for hours on end. The first thing she wants in the morning is Little Bear.
Maurice Sendak is the Illustrator and creator of Little Bear. It all started out as a children's book then a cartoon. I love the original illustrations the best. Else Holmelund Minarik is the one who wrote the stories. I have several of the Little Bear books. Although I can never have enough.
After years of watching Little Bear, Mother Bear, Father Bear, Emily, Lucy, Duck, Cat, Hen, Owl, No Feet, Mitzie, Tutu, Grannie, Grandfather Bear,Grandmother Bear and Uncle Rustie have all their adventures, we still love them all. I thought I should dedicate a family post to the characters who have become part of our family.
"I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library." -Jane Austen Pride and Prejudice, 1811
