From the Publisher:
"The day before Christmas,

snuggled on his floor,

Bear sleeps soundly

with a great big snore...."

Bear's friends are determined to keep Bear awake for Christmas! So they wake Bear up and have him help them find a Christmas tree, bake cakes, hang up stockings, and sing Christmas songs. Bear stays up -- by discovering that giving is one of the best Christmas presents!

How a SURPRISE visit from someone very special gives Bear and his friends a Christmas to remember makes an enchanting holiday story for young readers. With Karma Wilson's memorable text and Jane Chapman's glowing illustrations, Bear Stays Up for Christmas is a book to cherish throughout the year.

"The day before Christmas,/ snuggled on his floor,/ Bear sleeps soundly/ with a great big snore..." Not for long, though: Bear's various animal friends considerately awaken him from his hibernation so that they can celebrate Christmas together. They find a Christmas tree, bake a fruitcake, make popcorn, and sing songs until the other animals fall asleep, leaving Bear to continue baking cookies, wrapping gifts, and decorating the cave. He's in the midst of his Christmas preparations when Santa Claus himself strolls in. Soft acrylic paintings accompany the vigorous rhymed verses.


"The rhyming text sings, shouts, whispers, and crows, and the appealing acrylic illustrations are dear. This is an exuberant tale of friendship and perseverance, and holiday storytimes will be the brighter for it." 10/01/2004
