A search-and-find book with a difference! Children will love spotting the hiding bears, discovering the naughty things they've done and helping Big Bear to put everything back in its place - then flipping the page to see if they were right! It is the perfect interactive story book to share with a child aged 3+ who is in school or starting school or a nursery setting or when discussing why it's a good idea to tidy up!
It is part of a series of charming picture books - why not discover the little bears at bedtime, going shopping and having a picnic. The books have lots of detail and is brightly illustrated to engage small children. They help them explore their world and stretch their powers of observation, vocabulary and understanding.
