Big Bear outgrew his little boat, so he is building himself a big boat and can't wait till he's rowing, fishing, and relaxing in it. When his friends start suggesting improvements, Big Bear obligingly follows their advice. To his dismay, his big boat is turning out all wrong. It's because he hasn't followed his own dream, and he knows exactly how to fix it. With all the simplicity, warmth, and wisdom of Little Bear's Little Boat, this book honors an important step in growing up.

A young, simple sequel to Little Bear's Little Boat. Big Bear is building himself a big boat, but when he follows his friends' advice, it all goes wrong. Big Bear learns that it's important to be true to one's dreams, and to one's friends.
