* “He’s a bear of rare appeal, and it’s hard to resist the urge to snuggle down next to him.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A fresh selection for story times.” —School Library Journal

A year in the life of an endearing, hairy bear who spends his days fishing for salmon in the spring and enjoying the sweet tastes of honey and berries in the summer. But when winter comes, his very chilly, not-so-hairy nose is the only thing that stands in the way of a really great nap.

This cozy companion for naptime or bedtime is also a great way to introduce little ones to the four seasons!
