I love you, Big Bear!
The first time Sarah saw Big Bear was on a school outing. He looked just like Mr T, her teddy, only much, much bigger. Big Bear looked sad. So Sarah started talking to him. “Don't be sad,” she said softly. “I'm here.” She told him he was not alone. She told him not to worry and she told him secrets that nobody else knew. But when Sarah went home that afternoon, there were suitcases and boxes in the hallway. She heard angry voices and then Daddy drove away in his car. “Don't worry, darling,” Mum said. “You and I are going to be just fine.” But that night Sarah couldn't sleep. And before long, someone climbed through her window. “Don't be sad,” said a soft voice. “I'm here.” And there was Big Bear. Before long, they were having loads of adventures together…

“In the beginning, when all things began, these were the sounds which were music to man. ‘Cicadas, crickets, beetles and frogs. Seedpods, cocoons, hollowed out logs. Crackling fires, the patter of rain. Thundering hooves on the African plain. Birds in the air, in the trees – on the land. Wind in the grass through the leaves – over sand.” With magical illustrations from Joan Rankin, and poetry from masterful story teller, Wendy Hartmann, the rhyme lyrically captures the magic of the African sounds of nature. From the clicking of crickets to the crackle of the fire, follow the journey that celebrates these sounds, in the rhythm and music of Africa. Also available in Afrikaans, isiXhosa and isiZulu.
