Wandering lost through the forest at night, Baby Bear encounters lots of other animals, all of whom have advice for the stray cub. Some animals are helpful ("Look up and keep going," encourages Owl) while others are silly ("Hug a tree," suggest the squirrels). Yet with their guidance, Baby Bear is lovingly shepherded home before sunrise. Award-winning author and illustrator Kadir Nelson's lush, moonlight-drenched paintings create an atmosphere of quiet wonder in this comforting read that's just right for bedtime. If you're looking for another lost-and-found animal story, check out Come Along Daisy! by Jane Simmons.

Sweet and existential... quite a combination for a children's book. The artwork is realistic and nicely done but in the end the little bear expresses his unity with all nature instead of just finding his mom. The audience for this picture book may not appreciate the subtle stuff and will probably long for the lost cub to be reunited with a parent.
