Overview

Old Bear by Kevin Henkes

Snug and warm, curled and furry, Old Bear sleeps.

Red, orange, and brown leaves fly through the air, and it is snowing hard. Old Bear doesn't notice.

Old Bear is dreaming about being a cub again. He is dreaming about the beauty of the world. He is dreaming of everything he loves about the forest that is his home.

I'm not a big fan of all Kevin Henkes' books, but, lately, his picture books have been astonishingly lovely.  Old Bear, like Kitten's First Full Moon, is a sweet, gentle tale, but unlike Kitten, Old Bear is at the end of his life and he dreams about becoming a cub again. He first dreams that Winter has passed into Spring and that he is sleeping inside a giant crocus. Kevin Henkes takes us through the rest of the seasons with the same amount of imagination, humor and brilliant-hued illustrations. Even the fly-leafs boast outstanding artwork.  After Kitten and Old Bear, I can't wait to read (and probably buy) his next picture book.

This book was given to my son as a gift and we have delighted in reading this sweet tale ever since.

My two year old loves this book. We read it again and again! It is a permanent fixture on our coffee table. Kevin Henkes always delivers a great read. "Kitten's First Full Moon" was my oldest son's favorite. I would recommend anything by this author!

Kevin Henkes never disappoints. My two year old nephew was glued to the beautiful illustrations. A simple, but lovely portrayal of the four seasons.

Bears are the most wonderful animals on Earth. They dream on Winter to be happy, as they are in Winter too, same as the rest of the year, sharing with their brothers.
