Description

Shrieks of joy ensue when Big Brown Bear devises a clever sled that can carry four bears in this quintessential winter adventure.

Here’s a bright red sled
On a snowy day.
Where are the bears
To come out and play?

The little bears are ready to play in the snow. But — oh, no! Their sled is too small! It’s not as much fun to go sledding only two at a time, but what can they use to carry them all? Luckily, Big Brown Bear has an idea — and it starts with a belly flop!

Praise For Bears in the Snow (Bears on Chairs)

Walker's acrylic illustrations feature soft colors against simple backgrounds, playing up the action and the characters' emotions. Adults: get ready for your children to ask you to lie facedown in the snow at the top of a hill.

The simple, rhyming text works beautifully with the engaging acrylic illustrations. A wonderful title to share as a seasonal storytime read-aloud or for beginning readers to discover on their own.
