Synopsis

Baby Bear's Christmas Kiss by John Prater

It's Christmas Day and all the family have come to visit. Baby Bear and the cousins are so excited they shake and poke and sniff all the presents under the tree. But suddenly Baby Bear realizes - Grandbear doesn't have a present! With a bit of snow and some mistletoe 'berries' that twinkle like the star on the Christmas tree, Baby Bear creates a special snowberry snow bear for Grandbear. But he soon discovers that a Christmas kiss for Grandbear is worth far more than any present! With simple, poignant details, Prater captures all the joy and warmth of family at Christmas time.
