Summary

Summary

John Prater's lovable Little Bear is back again, this time in a brand new picture book for Christmas. Little Bear is getting excited because he knows Christmas is approaching. "Is it Christmas?" he asks his grandfather. "No, not yet, but after a few more sleeps, it will be," says Grandbear. Baby Bear can hardly wait, but there's a lot to be done. Most important of all, special visitors are coming. Every page of this delightful book is filled with the wonderment and anticipation that all children share as the holiday approaches. Toddlers will love the story and delight in John Prater's illustrations, as they wait for their own Christmas to arrive!

School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-Kind, patient Grandbear and exuberant, vulnerable Baby Bear are back in their seventh adventure. Energetic watercolor vignettes and full-page illustrations provide a funny counterpoint to the succinct text, as the animals clean, cook, play in the snow, find a tree, and decorate the house. Prater brilliantly conveys the newness of life for Baby Bear, the wonder and seriousness of a toddler discovering the world. Because the intergenerational characters interact in a deeply satisfying, humorous, and loving way, this welcome addition will be as pleasing to adult readers as it is to young listeners.-S. P.
