What small child has not experienced the pain of being rejected by the big kids? But besides feeling left out, what can a small child do? The boy in this story takes action, creating a friend that all the big kids want to play with. Suddenly, being little doesn't seem to matter nearly as much!First published in 1969, Blackboard Bear was instantly celebrated for its spare, consummate portrayal of a universal childhood experience. Now Martha Alexander, author and illustrator of many popular children's books, has created beautifully detailed full-color illustrations from her original three-color artwork -- thus readying a charming classic for a whole new generation of young fans.
