Two animal friends seek out wintertime treats in this second picture book in a charming series from Emily Gravett.
Bear and Hare go out to play in the snow. Hare enthusiastically catches snow on his tongue, makes snow angels, and builds a snow hare...but Bear isn’t having as much fun. Will Bear find a snowy activity so that both friends can enjoy the winter wonderland?
The odd couple from Bear & Hare Go Fishing, published earlier this year, returns for a snowy outing. From the uncomfortable expressions on Bear's face, it's plain to see that he isn't enjoying the experience as much as Hare is. He cowers behind a giant snowball, shielding himself against Hare's tiny snowballs, and when they walk up a steep hill, Bear anxiously asks, "Home?" A fun sled ride turns Bear's trepidation to enthusiasm: "Hare and Bear love snow!" With understated humor, Gravett captures the common childhood experience of feeling less-than excited about an activity that's supposed to be fun and how quickly those feelings can be reversed. Ages 4 8.
