Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '12 Kids List
“The Caldecott-winning team who created A Sick Day for Amos McGee is back with another utterly charming story. The quiet-yet-strong demeanor of a bear wanting to tell his friends a story is subtly sweet, and the selfless acts of help he gives those friends in their preparation for winter instead of telling them his story is lesson for all of us. The soft and detailed illustrations give soul to the animals. Just lovely!”
-- Amanda Snow, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA


Description

"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?

This endearing story of friendship and patience is a worthy companion to Philip and Erin Stead's last collaboration, "A Sick Day for Amos McGee," winner of the 2011 Caldecott Medal.

"Bear Has a Story to Tell "is a" Kirkus Reviews" Best Children's Book of 2012.
