    4. This is a beautiful illustrated story that follows a hare who wants nothing than to run and hop through the approaching winter, rather than laying in a cave with his friend bear While I was reading this, I swear this is a story I read when I was younger, and in looking into this story I found this is a re issue of a long out of print classic tale It s a wonderful story with some fabulous illustrations.

    5. My son and I loved the beautiful rhymes and gorgeous illustrations in this book about a bear who invites his rabbit friend to hibernate with him over the winter The rabbit soon grows restless and leaves the den to take his chances in the snowy world A wonderful example of how a very simple story can be told to great effect.

    6. My daughter and I enjoyed reading this story in rhyme The big bear must sleep the winter away, but bunny decided he needed to dance and run until the green returns and the rivers run Sweet.
