Author: Eve Bunting
This brand new gift edition of a holiday classic tells the tender story of two bears who interrupt their hibernation to celebrate Valentine’s Day together, from the winning author-illustrator team of Eve Bunting and Jan Brett.
Mr. and Mrs. Bear have never celebrated Valentine’s Day—they’ve always slept right through it! This year will be different, as Mrs. Bear plans to wake up early, in the middle of wintry February, to share this special day with Mr. Bear. She makes a Valentine’s Day sign, writes romantic poems, unearths a gift of a pot of summer honey she buried in the fall for safekeeping, and freshens up in the icy pond. Finally she’s ready to wake Mr. Bear. However, he’s not ready to get up! All her preparations won’t go to waste, though, because Mr. Bear has his own surprise. Bunting and Brett have crafted a charming story that will capture readers’ hearts.
