Book Synopsis



What better way for Bear to say thanks, than to have a big dinner with all his friends!

Review Quotes




"Chapman's glowing acrylics create a joyful atmosphere in a story that obliquely references Thanksgiving, but functions as a reminder of the importance of gratitude any time of year."-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Told in rhymed verse, the text reads aloud smoothly. As the animals arrive with their edible gifts, a repeated line, 'and the bear says thanks' gives children a chance to participate in the story. The book's large format allows plenty of space for the illustrations, and Chapman's lively acrylic paintings make the most of it. Even preschoolers new to the series will be charmed by this big, gentle bear and his generous woodland friends."--Booklist

"Who would not love this cuddly, soft, furry creature? A tender tale of friendship, timed for Thanksgiving."-- "Kirkus"

"Wilson does it again in this new installment about Bear and his forest friends.... The illustrations are as detailed as ever, and children will want to reach out and hug Bear because he is so fluffy and welcoming. The rhymes are pleasing to the ear and move the story along. This is a great choice to share in storytime when discussing gratitude, sharing, or thanks."--School Library Journal
