“Winter is coming,” Mother Bear said. “We must snuggle down to sleep in our den.”
Little Bear doesn’t want to sleep! He wants to know what snow is like. His friends try to show him by making mud-balls and angels in the sand. But Little Bear knows that while he’s asleep his friends will have fun in the soft, white snow. Will they forget all about him?
I regularly carry out workshops and events in schools and local libraries. Get in touch if you would like me to come to you!
