Synopsis

How to Build a Snow Bear by Eric Pinder

Thomas wants to build the biggest and best snowman ever. Since he can't do it alone, he'll need a helping hand--or a paw. But little bears love to hibernate. How do you wake up a snoozing bear? By tickling it? Singing to it? Maybe making its favorite snack? How to Build a Snow Bear is a story about two siblings sharing a wondrous wintry day.

Reviews

Thomas is a friendly, round-faced boy, and the bear looks like a large teddy bear. There is nothing scary here, just great problem-solving skills and sibling fun. VERDICT Preschool children will enjoy listening to the silly, sweet story. Older ones will be able to read it themselves-perhaps in a fort with a sibling. School Library Journal

Graegin's choice of muted colors infuses the story with an overall intimate and comfy feel. The soft browns of the characters

loving interactions. A pleasant choice for a cozy read
