Bear cub Sammy and his mother observe nature’s changes in this sweetly reassuring companion to Mama, How Long Will You Love Me? and Mama, Will You Hold My Hand? A caterpillar will soon become a butterfly, Mama explains, and “a spotty egg hatches into a baby bird.” Pignataro paints in the palest of palettes, tracing the two bears and various objects in wispy pencil lines. Boarding a small ship, Sammy imaginatively travels beyond the security of the meadow home; upon his return, the conversation inevitably turns to whether Sammy will change: “ ‘You will become big and strong,’ whispered Mama. ‘But you will be my little bear forever.’ ” Ages 3–5.
