On a cold winter night many animals gather to party in the cave of a sleeping bear, who then awakes and protests that he has missed the food and the fun.
In a cave in the woods, in his deep, dark lair, through the long, cold winter sleeps a great brown bear.
All time favorite book in our household!! We LOVE the pictures and expressions on the animal faces. The book is written in a sing-song poetic type verse. Excellent and fun vocabulary to share with your children! Lovable characters, beautiful word choice, wonderful message of friendship, and fantastic illustrations! You will love the whole series, but this one is the best!!
Excellent read aloud story for toddlers. Set in late winter, the bear is hibernating & his friends decide to come in out of the cold to have a party in his den. The festivities wake our friend bear who, after grumbling a bit, joins the party.
