Little Bear's Friend is an I Can Read! book published in 1960. It is the third book in the series Little Bear.
One summer Little Bear makes friends with a girl named Emily. But when summer ends, Emily must leave. Little Bear is very sad—until he finds a way to stay close to his friend even when she is far away!
Little Bear's Friend is divided into four separate stories.
Little Bear and Emily
Duck, Baby Sitter
The Party at Owl's House
Upon arriving at the party, Lucy, Emily's doll, wanted to sit in a tree. Then she fell. Luckily, Little Bear was able to fix her broken arm.
"Your Friend, Little Bear"
Summer is nearly over, and Emily has to go home. And although Little Bear is sad, his parents comfort him and he knows that she will be back next year. Over the winter, he learns to write and sends Emily a letter.
The four stories in Little Bear's Friend went on to be adapted into segments in the show Little Bear.
Little Bear's Friend is dedicated "To Mother and Father".
