Bear is here to enjoy the gifts of each season, especially summer and HONEY! Bear has awoken from his winter nap with only one thing on his mind: honey! Alas, it is too soon for honey, so Bear tries hard to be patient. Fortunately, the world around him is waking up, too. There is warm grass, berries, the smell of flowers. There is rain to dance in and a creek to swim in. Bear is almost content, until, one day, he hears a welcome buzzing sound . . . and finally it is time for Bear to delight in the thing he relishes above all others–and it is as warm, golden, sweet, and good as he remembered. This sweet companion to David Ezra Stein’s award-winning Leaves celebrates the joy of savoring something you love.
