Patrick Benson enlarged his technique of cross-hatching for the illustrations of OWL BABIES so that it would have "a more graphic image -- rather like a woodcut."

Still a great book Oct 23, 2007
I read this book to my daughters when they were younger. They are in college now and still recall our reading of this book as one of their favorite childhood memories. What more can a daddy ask of a book?

When my little one was even littler, Let's Go Home, Little Bear was the one sure-fire put-to-sleeper on her bookshelf. The gentle, soothing rhythm of the text combined with soft illustrations to slowly, slowly, slowly drop the eyelids. By the time Little Bear got all snuggly back at home, my own little bear was inevitably down for the evening.
There's not much of a plot, but this story relays a powerful message of the grown up providing a protecting and caring environment. Now that my friends are raising their own little bears, this is one book I make certain I give them. And my now-10-years-old bear has made it a permanent part of her babysitting kit.
You cannot go wrong with this book. Oct 24, 2001
This is a cute story about Big Bear and Little Bear. As they are heading home from a walk in the snow, Little Bear becomes concerned that he has heard "plodders", "drippers" and "ploppers". Big Bear points out the source of these noises, and eases Little Bear's mind. This book is cute, funny, comforting, and an easy read. It is a good bedtime length (not too long) book. I think Martin Waddell is a fantastic children's book writer, and I highly recommend this book for children up to 8 or 9.

My two year old really loves this book! We snuggle up to read this and my two yr old, holds tighter and tighter as the book progresses. The content is exciting, the illustrations are great-what more is needed? Great story!
