In Big Bear, Small Mouse by Karma Wilson, and illustrated by Jane Chapman, a small mouse and a big bear discover all the opposites among their friends. Some animals are big and some animals are small. Some friends are short and some friends are tall. We can see opposites everywhere. Bear is big, big, big and mouse is small, small, small. Bear and Mouse wave to Badger as he goes by. Badger is very slow. But Hare is very fast! There is a flutter in the sky and Wren is flying low while owl is soaring high. The sun is setting outside and it’s getting cold and wet out there. But Bear’s lair is nice and warm. All the animal friends gather together inside.
“Cold night, warm lair. Quiet woods, loud friends. High Owl, low Wren. Slow Badger, fast Hare. Small Mouse and BIG BEAR!” See this book listed in our catalog
