Overview
Bad weather frightens Bear, but his woodland friends are there to help him in this sweet, reassuring Bear story from bestselling duo Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman

In the deep, dark woods

a big bear lumbers
down a small, crooked trail...

The sun is setting and it's getting chilly. When Bear's friends discover that he is not at home in his lair, they march out into the cold to find their pal. Friends don't let friends stay lost Wren, Owl, and Raven take to the skies while Badger, Mole, and Mouse search on the ground. Pretty soon Bear is found, and once he's back in his cave, he feels quite safe with his friends all around.

Beloved Bear gets another emotional workout, this time a frightening episode in the dark and stormy woods. While Bear is on the trail of a snack, things quickly turn windy, wet and, as Bear gets lost, downright spooky. He cries and trembles, curling up amid the gnarled roots of a huge tree until his ever-faithful band of woodland friends—who have carefully formed a proper search party—come to his aid. Via rhyming text and the repeated refrain “And the bear feels scared,” Wilson and Chapman (Bear Snores On; Bear Feels Sick) once again tap into the psychology of preschoolers, exploringa common childhood emotion. Chapman’s acrylics capture the motion of the blowing winds, while Bear’s ultra-expressive eyes and lumbering hulk demonstrate his vulnerability; readers will immediately connect to his experience. Meanwhile, in the cozy fire-lit lair, preparations for Bear’s rescue—replete with lantern and string to tie the searchers to one another—evoke warm feelings about teamwork and support. Ages 3–7. (Aug.)
