So the young bear sets out to find his cosy spot.
He asks Frog if he can try his lily pad. But it proves a little bit wet.
He asks Bird if he can try his tree. But it's a little bit windy.
He asks Rabbit if he can try his burrow. But it's a bit of a tight fit.
And on he goes, asking animal after animal if he can try out a sleepy spot that may just prove perfect.
Finally, clever mouse shows Bernard the very best place for hibernating bears.
This is a very typical storyline, with much repetitiveness--something that attracts very small kids. The illustrations are its forte--just gorgeous, textural and utterly charming, with plenty of white space and fine layout and design.
A nice bedtime book.
