Big Bear stepped out of her winter den. By her side, half asleep and blinking in the spring sunshine, wobbled a tiny cub...

Spring is here and new life is stirring. There is so much for Big Bear to teach her new cub about the wonders of nature as they step out into the forest. Their journey will take them through summer and autumn and winter, always together, always discovering.

With its lyrical storytelling and evocative charcoal drawings depicting the natural world in all its glory, Jo Weaver's debut book has the feel of an instant classic. The beautifully simple cover with gold foil, instantly conjures the tender relationship between parent and child.

Jo Weaver was shortlisted for the AOI Illustration New Talent Awards 2014.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Gorgeously drafted charcoal artwork and understated writing create a yearlong journey for two bears in this terrifically self-assured first book from British author-artist Weaver * Publisher's Weekly *
A superb evocation of the love and care a mother has for her child and the delicate pencil drawings depict this to perfection * Parents In Touch *
A journey through the seasons with some life lessons for Little One, wonderfully rendered in Jo Weaver's quietly beautiful charcoal illustrations.... There's a gentle lyrical, almost meditational quality too.... It's one to be shared -- Jill R Bennett * Red Reading Hub *
A touching story of discovery shown through changing seasons * South Wales Evening Post *
Beautiful.. a.... Gentle picture book that's full of atmosphere -- Jen Campbell * Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops *
Drawn in tones of white and grey, with a hint of almost black, it'd be easy to feel it's not colourful enough for a children's picture book. But you'd be wrong. There is something so comforting about these quiet pictures of a mother and her child. The landscape is beautiful...It feels perfect * Bookwitch *
A remarkable picture book debut ... The tender intimacy of the bond between mother and cub is caught in Weaver's beautifully nuanced and evocative prose ... As an example of how to harmonise the verbal and the visual to create a memorable picture book, Little One sets the bar very high indeed * Irish Times.com *
The stunning black-and-white illustrations convey the wonder of nature , parental love and gaining independence * Nursery World *
The stunning black-and-white illustrations convey the wonder of nature, parental love and gaining independence * Nursery World *
When I saw it the first time, I cried. I am not a child -- I am 36. But I cried like a little baby ... Little One is Love, Life, Nature, Seasons, Time, Home, Family, Animals... All together in few pages. A real masterpiece -- Maximiliano Candia
A gentle and endearing story, the love and care that Jo Weaver has put into her words and pictures is evident on every page... a beautifully calm and serene story. * The Carousel *
