   Two bear cus are playing with their balls when the little brown bear gets its red ball stuck in a tree. Now what are they going to do? The little bear is far too small and too short to reach the red ball. The white bear however is bigger. Maybe the white bear can get the red ball out of the tree.

    Beautifully illustrated and presented in the simplest and most elegant way, this book highlights the opposites “big” and “small”, “run” and “crawl”, “short” and “tall”, and more. It also shows the young reader how two characters, even if they are very different, can work together to fix a problem.
