Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Within a gentle tale of hibernation and renewal, the Stead's second collaboration (after Caldecott-winning A Sick Day for Amos McGee) explores a second, internal theme: the nature of the storytelling narrative itself." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[E]specially soulful....The quiet suggestion that no one has all the answers is just one of the many pleasures the Stead's give readers." Publishers Weekly, starred review

Review:

"The universal desire to narrate our lives is at the heart of Philip C. Stead's delightful and instructive Bear Has a Story to Tell." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"The rhythms of nature and of storytelling are in fine form here." School Library Journal, starred review

Review:

"The creators of the Caldecott-winning A Sick Day for Amos McGee (2010) offer another charming story about the reciprocal nature of friendship." Booklist

Review:

"Quietly entrancing." Horn Book
