Seldom has the caring and the guidance of a mother and the curiosity and trust of a child been so tenderly depicted as in this generously sized and beautiful picture book set in the far off Artic. A young polar bear, just out of infancy, asks his mother, "What is it like to be big?" With infinite patience, his mother shows him what to expect as he grows--how he will one day run like the wind, jump as high as a bird, and dive and swim like a fish. He will be so tall he will almost touch the sky! In the Artic world created by Jane Chapman's subtly hued, glowing paintings, the love between mother and child shines forth.
