Cute book. It's about the fear of the world, which must appear so big to children, and how friendship can help overcome it.
The story begins in a way similar to "The Gruffalo's Child" (for those of you who might have read it). Baby Bear sets off on an adventure in the Arctic Circle, his home. He soon grows afraid of the world - the sky is so big, the ocean so vast, - but then he meets Sammy the Seal. They have a little conversation and Baby Bear finds comfort in it: despite his size, Sammy the Seal is a brave creature.
Baby Bear finds his way home, into his mother's arms, and falls asleep, reassured that the world is not so big and scary if one has the courage to face it.
Beautiful double-page illustrations, the author uses many shades of blue to depict the Arctic.
Educational and inspirational book, recommended.
