Bear's First Christmas

A Christmas glory to share with the people you love best. Lyrical rhymes plus Jim LaMarche’s glittering pictures of nature. Would YOU want to miss Christmas? Nor does this bear. One night in the dark of winter, he is woken up from his long sleep by a gentle faraway sound. So Bear follows the sound through the snowy starlit forest, helping lots of cold animals on his way. Then Bear and his new friends stumble across a woodland cabin, its windows glowing with bright lights. Something magical and special is about to happen: Bear’s first Christmas.
