The Book

This is an amazing book.  In the North Pole there's Big the Bear who is very shy and in the South Pole is Little Penguin who swims but cannot fly.  When learning of each other they just knew that they would have to meet but unfortunately neither could fly so they will have to use their feet to reach each other. 

Each sets off on the long trek across North (Big Bear) and South America (Little Penguin)  to have "face time" in the middle.  Along their journey they encounter many new animals:  some guanacos, a lone wolf, a chatty raven, a curious coati. a herd of bisons and many kinds of jungle animals playfully having fun,  just to name a few.  Bear discovers the Golden Gate Bridge and Little Penguin dances at the Rio Carnival.  

At long last the friends meet right in the middle and enjoy a fishy snack because telling tales to each other is very hungry work.  

This educational book showcases the marvelous treasures that lie between the North and South Poles.  With playful rhyme and beautiful illustrations children will be introduced to the geography of the Americas, the Arctic, and Antarctica plus engage in the sights and sounds of diverse and pleasing attractions as the two best friends make their way to finally meet and enjoy each other's company in real time.  The last page offers a map of their adventures with documented highlights of their  extraordinary trip.  

"Big & Little Meet in the Middle"  is a wonderful tale and I highly recommend it.
