Bear’s many animal friends try to help him get to sleep in time for winter hibernation in this companion story to Bear Snores On.

It’s winter, and deep in the forest, Bear should be fast asleep. But when his friends come by to check on him, they realize that Bear is still awake! They brew him hot tea and sing him lullabies, but nothing seems to work. Can Bear get to bed? Or will he be up all winter?
