Old Bear by Kevin Henkes

Kevin Henkes' books are completely delightful, which is why you will see several of them on my blog. Old Bear published in 2008 is a simple story about a bear hibernating and dreaming of all the seasons.

His dreams are like my dreams with impossible things happening, but all the impossibilities are things that go right along with the season.

For spring, there are flowers as big as trees, and he can nap in a giant pink crocus.

In summer, the sun is a daisy, the leaves are butterflies, and the clouds rain blueberries.

Autumn brings a landscape of everything yellow, orange, and brown.

Winter is covered in ice with stars of all colors.

This sweet and simple book is a quick read and makes a good bed time story especially if your child wants more than one story.

The hardcover edition is beautifully bound with heavy pages, and it also comes as board book for about half the cost.

Read to a child today even if that child is you!
