Children's LiteratureMrs. Bear amasses all sorts of goodies for her hibernating spouse. While Mr. Bear snores, his furry lady makes a decorative sign, writes two special poems and sets out a feast of honey and dried bugs. And still he snoozes. Will he sleep right through Valentine's Day? Mrs. Bear fetches a can of ice water; but her husband wakens just in time to avoid a dousing—and reveals the Valentine treats he has long been hiding.

Brett's black-and-white drawings are full of winter details and touched with red, as befits the holiday. 2004 (orig. 1983), Clarion, Ages 3 to 7.
