Publisher's Summary

Beatrice & Bear meet one spring day and become best buddies. They play together through summer and fall. Then winter comes and Beatrice can't find Bear anywhere. She hears he's gone to hibernate -- but where on earth is that?
When Beatrice learns that hibernation is not a place and that Bear will be sleeping all winter long, she fears it will be a lonely season...unless she can come up with a brilliant plan.
This delightful story of an irrepressible bunny will engage readers on many levels as it celebrates creativity, making the best of circumstances, and the joy of the changing seasons.

Although their friendship gets off to a rough start, Beatrice and Bear become great friends. The illustrations in ink and watercolor are bold and energetic. Beatrice is especially excitable, it's easy to see her energy against the backdrop of Bear's hibernation. In spite of Beatrice's assertion that "bunnies are great hibernators," it just isn't in her DNA. With a little help from squirrel, Beatrice survives the winter without Bear. The story celebrates friendship in all its forms: early stages, rocky stages, getting to know one another, sharing interests and taking turns, patience, separation, thoughtfulness, reunion. Hurrah for Beatrice and Bear (and squirrel)!

This book about best friends bunny and bear is a perfect example of a great friendship! There's some humor involved, as well as beautiful illustrations that really add to the story. I love that bunny doesn't despair when she realized she'll have to spend the winter without bear, but she instead focuses on spending her time alone creating something fun for them to enjoy together once bear wakes up. :)

This is such a fun story of best friends who can't always be together. Beatrice wonders where Bear has gone and when she finds out he is hibernating because it's Winter she decides to try and go along with him. When that proves to be difficult she finds another way to close the distance between the two friends. It is fun to read this with little ones who may not know what different seasons mean for different animals.
