Sad, Sad Bear

Illustrated by Kimberly Gee

Bear is very SAD today. Mommy is going to work. And that means Bear has to go to Cub Care for the very first time. Little ones and grown-ups alike are sure to relate to the up-and-down feelings explored in this sweet and empathetic picture book.

Bear is feeling very sad today. Mommy has to go to work, so Bear has to go to Cub Care. But Bear doesn’t know anyone there at all! How will he make it through the day? Luckily, with the help of some brand-new friends, Bear cheers up, has fun, and then can’t wait to tell Mommy all about it when she comes to get him at the end of the day.

This companion to Mad, Mad Bear! and Glad, Glad Bear! takes the relatable experience of going to day care or school for the first time and reassures young readers that making new friends and having new experiences is a wonderful thing.
