The bears are excited to swim, climb, and run…all except the littlest one. The lake looks so wide! And the tree looks so tall! As the little bear watches her siblings having fun, she learns it’s OK to set her own pace in this playful tale about facing fears by taking one step at a time.

Parents and children will enjoy sharing this adorably illustrated story that encourages trusting your instincts and trying new things.
