'Little One' by Jo Weaver is apparently her first picture book, and it's a quiet delight.

The story is of a mother bear and cub as they travel through the seasons. The story is short and the pictures are breathtaking. The story is effused with maternal love and little ones reading it will realize that little bear is cared for and loved.

Each page of story is a double page, and the art needs that room to spread out and envelop the reader. The pictures are all in black and white, but I hesitate to tell you that because they have the kind of detail and shading that probably only works best in black and white. From the suffuse light of early Spring in the woods to flying and jumping salmon, to snow and hibernation, the story is a quiet wonder. This is not a loud, busy book. This is a book to read at quiet times and savored.

I received a review copy of this ebook from Myrick Marketing & Media, LLC, Peachtree Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
