* “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!

Down the Road

Mama and Papa agree that eggs for breakfast would be nice, but they’re too busy to go to the store. So they decide that Hetty is old enough to go by herself. Although she practices walking smoothly up the hill so she won’t break the precious eggs, she can’t help running all the way down. Young readers will hold their breath as Hetty tries her very best to get those eggs home safely. “The story is remarkable for its evocative imagery, and the loving interchange between the characters sets a charming tone. The words are perfectly complemented by Lewis’s dazzling, impressionistic watercolors that show the joyous power of love and depict a warmly supportive world in which Hetty ventures forth toward independence. A fine book that speaks straight to the heart.”--Booklist
