This is a very simple book with beautiful yet simply painted pictures of Bear and the rest of the forest animals. The strengths of this book, like Mo Willems book, keeps you hooked till the very end. The reader wants to find out what Bears’s story is. What’s so delightful is that the bear is completely content with how things are the way they are and is very patient. What I love about the bear, the other forest animals and the story in general is that fact that there is this anticipation but we are willing wait for it, because the bear is willing to wait for it. Delayed gratification. ( )

So gentle, and such a nice uncluttered story. I love that even though the bear wants to help, and does help, his friends, that the "helping" really isn't all that much help. I think that is just exactly where so many kids are...a little bit of help is all they can contribute. And that the friends really have absolutely no idea what Bear's story was, but that they figure out a way to help Bear back by giving him a story that works anyway? Love it. ( )

Beautifully animated children's picture book about Bear who has a story to tell, but it's winter and the other animals don't have time before hibernating to listen. ( )
