Background information

The four stories in Little Bear's Visit went on to be adapted into segments in the show Little Bear.

Although, like previous books in the Little Bear series, Little Bear's Visit is divided into four stories, they are all connected around a single visit that Little Bear makes to his grandparents' house.

Little Bear's Visit is dedicated "To all grandparents and all grandchildren".
