Description

Thomas wants to build the biggest and best snowman ever. Since he can't do it alone, he'll need a helping hand--or a paw. But little bears love to hibernate. How do you wake up a snoozing bear? By tickling it? Singing to it? Maybe making its favorite snack?

How to Build a Snow Bear is a story about two siblings sharing a wondrous wintry day.

Praise For How to Build a Snow Bear: A Picture Book

“Thomas is a friendly, round-faced boy, and the bear looks like a large teddy bear. There is nothing scary here, just great problem-solving skills and sibling fun. VERDICT Preschool children will enjoy listening to the silly, sweet story. Older ones will be able to read it themselves-perhaps in a fort with a sibling.” —School Library Journal

“Graegin's choice of muted colors infuses the story with an overall intimate and comfy feel. The soft browns of the characters' faces, bear suit, and house interior reflect the warmth permeating the brothers' loving interactions. A pleasant choice for a cozy read.” —Kirkus Reviews
