"This simple story opens the door to exploration of sophisticated concepts." - Kirkus Reviews "Bear is preparing to hibernate through the winter while his friends Elephant and Chicken take him on a colorful adventure before he goes to sleep for his long hibernation period. Showing the joy of sharing life and adventure with friends through cute colorful illustrations to accompany the story." - Being Unique Books It's almost winter. Bear is getting ready to go to sleep. But when he sees birds flying south, Bear decides he wants to go too! Bear isn't sleepy . . . yet . . . A warm story about adventure, and friendship, and being yourself. For sleepy bears ages 3 and up. Guided Reading Level H "This delightful book is about adventure, friendship, and being yourself. The illustrations are simple and small so it will work best one-on-one rather than in a group. Bear discovers that home is where the heart is and his own bed, in his own cave, is best for him. I recommend this book." - Storywraps

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Bear, Elephant, and Chicken set out to find out where the birds go in winter. Although it is almost time for Bear to go to sleep for the cold season (the word hibernation is not used in this book for very young children), he becomes curious when he sees birds flying in a V. His friend Elephant explains, "They are flying to a warm place for the winter." Bear gets the notion that he might enjoy such a place and convinces his friends (the trio from Goodbye, Grandpa, 2018) to accompany him. They travel through a variety of disparate landscapes, but Bear doesn't feel the sleepiness that should be naturally overtaking him. Finally, just when they are nearing the "warm place," Bear falls asleep. When his friends try to wake him, he starts weeping and explains that he wants to return home: "Bears don't go to warm places in the winter. Bears sleep in the winter." Of course, his friends help him immediately thanks to a hot air balloon that magically appears. The cartoon animals and the spare, matte backgrounds with just a hint of detail complement this simple story with its beginning look at scientific concepts, just enough to start young children wondering about bears and birds and their seasonal habits. The animals' adventures may also jump-start ideas about travel and geography. This simple story opens the door to exploration of sophisticated concepts." - Kirkus Reviews "Young children will love this touching friendship story. Friends enjoy their adventures together. The story beautifully captures how true friends stand by each other." - ITEEA "Bear is preparing to hibernate through the winter while his friends Elephant and Chicken take him on a colorful adventure before he goes to sleep for his long hibernation period. Showing the joy of sharing life and adventure with friends through cute colorful illustrations to accompany the story." - Being Unique Books "I thought this was a really cute book about a bear that wants to follow birds instead of hibernating but quickly realizes this may not be the right choice. I love the illustrations and how sleepy everyone gets, I think this would make a great bedtime story. " - Indigo Books and Music "Great book about a bear who is not ready for hibernation." - Fairfield County District Library
