It was almost winter and Bear was getting sleepy.

But first, Bear had a story to tell…

Bear found his friend Mouse, but Mouse was busy gathering seeds and didn’t have time to listen to a story. Then Bear saw his friend Duck, but Duck was getting ready to fly south. What about his friend Toad? He was busy looking for a warm place to sleep. By the time Bear was through helping his friends get ready for winter, would anyone still be awake to hear his story?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Big, furry bears abound in children’s books, but Erin Stead’s is especially soulful…Helpfulness in…books can teach a moral lesson or it can let readers imagine luxuriating in that tender care themselves.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “[A] charming story about the reciprocal nature of friendship, this time set against the backdrop of the changing seasons and showing how different animals cope with wintry weather…a cozy, quiet feel that is enlivened by Bear’s expressive countenance, which has just the right touch of adorable pudge.”


  • “The Steads’ work adopts a folkloric approach to cooperative relationships; the affectionately rendered animals that stand in for humans convey a nurturing respect for child readers.”
