Inspired by boredom and curiosity, Bear learns a sweet lesson about his “home” in the green forest by visiting other animals in their home habitats.  Bored waking up each morning in the same green forest, Il Sung Na’s beautiful new board book brings us on a journey with Bear as he searches for a new home too high in the trees with birds and too dirty underground with moles, on a scary steep cliff with a goat and in the paw-burning.

— From Batya's Picks


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.
