It was almost winter and Bear was getting sleepy.
But first, Bear had a story to tell...
Bear found his friend Mouse, but Mouse was busy gathering seeds and didn't have time to listen to a story. Then Bear saw his friend Duck, but Duck was getting ready to fly south. What about his friend Toad? He was busy looking for a warm place to sleep. By the time Bear was through helping his friends get ready for winter, would anyone still be awake to hear his story?
This endearing story of friendship and patience is a worthy companion to Philip and Erin Stead's last collaboration, A Sick Day for Amos McGee, winner of the 2011 Caldecott Medal.
Bear Has a Story to Tell is a Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Book of 2012. This title has Common Core connections.

This was a lovely and educational book. The pictures were beautiful watercolors, and there was a little humor in it at the end. It was a great bed time story and my grandchildren will enjoy it again and again.
not bad, kids love it!
I purchased the book for friends' 3 year old. The response I got-- What a wonderful and cute book!
Great story and pictures
It’s almost winter, and Bear knows that it will soon be time for sleep, but first he has a story to tell. Will any of his friends, mouse who needs to gather seeds or duck who needs to fly south, be able to listen to his story? Bear Has a Story to Tell is a beautiful story of patience, kindness, and friendship with the occasional spurt of humour that will make you smile. It is beautifully illustrated by Erin E. Stead, the soft colours and painted feel adding to the sleepy calm nature that Bear evokes. A story within itself, Bear Has a Story to Tell will make a perfect addition to any child, or grown up’s, bedtime collection.
