Warmth and humor fill the snowy day adventures of two friends, a bear and a chipmunk, who, despite their physical differences, share work and play and true companionship.
PreS-Gr 1—This simple, sweet story of Bear and his affable little friend, Chipmunk, follows the pair through a day of wintertime activities. "I love snow!" Bear says as they gaze out the window at the falling flakes. "Me, too!" Chipmunk replies, cap and sweater in hand. Outdoors, Bear has lots of ideas: he will dig a path in the snow, make a snowman, ice skate, and ski. And so will Chipmunk. At home, over cocoa and cookies in front of the fireplace, outerwear hanging on a clothesline, they reflect on the fun they had. Short declarative sentences and a great deal of repetition make this picture book perfect for developing readers. The large, joyful watercolor and ink illustrations are enchanting and will help children make predictions regarding unfamiliar words. Well done.—Erica Thorsen Payne, Meriwether Lewis Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA
