“Old Bear falls asleep and dreams of the seasons. The changing color palette of the delightful illustrations mimic the seasons, making this a visual treat for young eyes.”
-- Lisa Fabiano, Wellesley Booksmith, Wellesley, MA


Description

Snug and warm, curled and furry, Old Bear sleeps.

Red, orange, and brown leaves fly through the air, and it is snowing hard. Old Bear doesn't notice.

Old Bear is dreaming about being a cub again. He is dreaming about the beauty of the world. He is dreaming of everything he loves about the forest that is his home.
