Old Bear is a wonderful story about hibernation and the seasons of the year. The color palette changes to reflect each season.

This imaginative and beautifully illustrated picture book reminds us that spring is coming, even as winter seems deepest. This is a great way to introduce the changing seasons to our little ones. Available in large Board Book format as well.
