A charming story, just right for bedtime reading. A small bear follows his mother, from spring to summer, and summer through fall, doing just what she does, so she calls him “a little Copycub.” Together they splash in the swamp, pick berries, climb trees for honey, until at last in autumn, they begin the long journey back to a winter cave. It snows and blows; Copycub gets very tired and wants to sleep in the snow. His mother urges him on until they are snug inside the cave, ready to snooze away the winter on a cozy bed of leaves. Winter’s soft watercolors show glowing golden bears in a pastel-colored north woods that changes through the seasons. Sweet and brief, this is sure to please toddlers. (Picture book. 3-6)
