“I’m staying awake the WHO-O-O-O-O-OLE winter,” said Baby Black Bear.

“Sure, son.” Papa Bear winked.

“Of course, you are.” Mama Bear grinned.

“I mean it!” Baby Bear growled the best growl a baby black bear can growl.


Baby Black Bear doesn’t want to go to bed just like all kids who try to stay up past their bedtimes. He wants to stay up and play with his friends Owl, Moose, and Hare and enjoy the winter. But what happens when Baby Bear doesn’t hibernate? How will he stay awake? What will he eat? Can he stay warm?

Find out what happens when Baby Bear doesn’t hibernate in this fun, fictional story. Plus enjoy the black bear facts in the back of the book.
