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

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.
—Kirkus Reviews

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.
