This is one of those books, which is sure to become a favorite.
Baby Bear follows Mama out of the cave to search for food, but the outdoors is so exciting. His curiosity has him peering behind trees, boulders and many other places where Mama can't immediately see him. Each time, she calls, 'Where, oh where, is Baby Bear?' and each page, turns to a fun game of hide-and-go-seek.
Young listeners/readers love to play peek-a-boo or hide-and-go-seek, and this book allows them to dive into that fun. Baby Bear is quite the character as he investigates the best hiding corners. Young listeners/readers will enjoy seeking him out and announcing exactly where that bear has gone off to. It's interactive and draws kids into a game they love to play themselves.
But this isn't only a fun game. While each spread turns into a seeking exercise, it also portrays the life of a bear. Subtly, young listeners/readers discover Baby Bear's habitat and learn what exactly bears love to munch on. The illustration bring the landscape to life, while incorporating a lovely dose of fun. Near the end of the tale, the journey of Baby Bear and Mama is mapped out on their return trip to the cave. This allows kids to test their memories and see if they can remember all the places Baby Bear visited.
Summed up, this is a cute, fun, yet simple read which is sure to lure young listeners/readers in and have them playing along again and again and again.
I received a complimentary copy and enjoyed this one so much that I wanted to leave my honest thoughts.

This picture book continues Wolff’s series on Baby Bear and his explorations of his habitat. Here, Baby Bear and his mother head out to look for food. But every time his mother looks for him, Baby Bear has disappeared. Again and again she has to call out “Where, oh where, is Baby Bear” and then her little bear responds. Readers will enjoy spotting where Baby Bear is heading and then where he is hiding as the pages turn. The repetition is handled nicely, giving the book a lovely rhythm when being read aloud. The illustrations are crisp and filled with details of their forest home. A great read aloud pick. Appropriate for ages 1-4.
We were given this book at a baby shower. Our son is almost 2 and it is still a favorite. I love the illustrations and the flow of the book. My son loves to point out where baby bear is before he is fully seen on the next page. It’s a sweet book that I highly recommend.
We checked out this book from the local library to read. All opinions are my own. Where Oh Where, is Baby Bear? by Ashley Wolff 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟As night falls in the forest Baby Bear watches the bats leave the cave in search for food and Baby Bear wants to go to. So Mama Bear agrees and Baby Bear keeps exploring and wandering from Mama playing hide and seek. Cute drawings shows pieces of baby bear to keep little ones searching for where he will turn up next only little clues like a paw here or ears there. Very cute read for ages 3 and up!
My 2.5 year old daughter LOVES this book. She loves the illustrations and enjoys figuring out where "baby bear" is before the book tells her. She also enjoys pointing out the other animals illustrated on the pages that the book doesn't talk about. This is one of her favorite books.
