Bear has a special talent for piano, but is it worth leaving his home to be a big star? David Litchfield bursts in with this debut picture book that warmed my music and cuddly bear-loving heart. Be warned when reading this to your small ones--it might make you cry!
One day, a bear cub finds something strange and wonderful in the forest. When he touches the keys, they make a horrible noise. Yet he is drawn back again and again. Eventually, he learns to play beautiful sounds, delighting his woodland friends. Then the bear is invited to share his sounds with new friends in the city. He longs to explore the world beyond his home, and to play bigger and better than before. But he knows that if he leaves, the other bears will be very sad . . . This gorgeously illustrated tale of following one's dreams reminds us of the value of friendship, wherever we go.
