Staff Reviews

A very endearing bear gets a little bored and goes visiting, with some uncomfortable results. Na’s rich illustrative style and spare text will help the littlest readers understand this natural concept.

— From Toni's Top Ten Brilliant Books of 2015


Follow Bear as he visits animal habitats around the world--and comes to appreciate his own home--in this new offering from the creator of A Book of Sleep and A Book of Babies.

Bear is tired of waking up every morning in the same green forest, so he decides to search for a new place to live. He visits the birds in the trees, a mole underground, a camel in the hot desert sand, puffins in the cold arctic snow . . . only to realize his own home is the perfect place for him after all. Welcome Home, Bear offers rich illustrations, bright colors, and a simple, spare text--all wrapped up in a beautiful, kid-friendly package. Readers meet animals in their habitats around the world--and return with Bear to the one place he is truly happy.
