5.0

This is one of my favorite Bear books I’ve read thus far and a cute variation on the classic bear-tries-to-stave-off-tired-hibernation-for-fun theme, with a fun little twist at the end. Good friends and fun traditions to be had all around!

Bear has great friends to help him stay awake so he doesn’t miss Christmas! I think the illustrations in this book are darling. The message of celebrating Christmas with friends you love was great, though not a huge storyline.
