Synopsis

Bear Hug by Katherine McEwen

One bear is facing winter alone for the first time in his life. Just like his father showed him, he gathers leaves for his cave, and just like his mother showed him, he catches fat silver fish to eat. The bear meets his mate and both sleep away the winter in his cosy cave, snuggled in a big bear hug. When spring arrives, a new bear cub arrives also, and the new father begins to teach his child all he has learned.
