Chaucer knows that bears are supposed to sleep through the winter. But it's much more fun to stay up and play!

I love this awesome book.
With Fall nipping the air we know that Ol' Man Winter's on his way, so it's a perfect time to meet Chaucer, a cuddly little brown bear who is perplexed when his best friends, Nugget and Kit, say, "We're going to miss you a lot." Chaucer wanted to know where he'd be when they were missing him, and was told that he'd be sleeping because that's what bears did. His parents verified that fact for him - bears slept in the winter. However, Chaucer was not convinced, so when his parents settled down to snooze he went outside. Snow fascinated him, especially the flakes that landed on his nose and tongue. "It's magic," he said. His friends were very surprised to see him, and immediately decided that they had to teach him about snow. Well, save for slipping on the ice Chaucer loved everything about winter and so will young readers as they see it through this little bear's eyes. Krensky, the author of over 100 children's book, has penned an easy reading story that rolls joyfully along. Artist Henry Cole uses acrylic paint, colored pencil, and ink to create full page illustrations that are both tender and comical. - Gail Cooke
