The bear in the book
Kate Banks
Andersen Press
UK Publication Date

It's time for bed, and a little boy chooses his favourite book for his
mother to read to him. He identifies with the bear in the book who is preparing for his own
deep slumber, hibernating through the winter while humans and other
animals explore the snowy landscape around him. Just when the bear wakes
up to greet the spring, the boy drifts off to sleep.
