PreS-Gr 2–In a pink bathrobe and with a cup of coffee in hand, a big bear peaks out of the window at the lovely red and orange fall foliage. It’s time for the seven little bears to get their sweaters on! For these independent cubs (and one especially adorable baby bear), getting dressed is trickier than it seems. One little bear can’t find the head hole, two are stuck in a single sweater, sweater arms are all tangled up, and one little bear’s unraveling green sweater leaves a string of yarn dancing around the pages. With the big bear’s help, all the cubs are finally wrangled and ready to venture out into the crispy air to enjoy the gathering dusk, and even a far-off shooting star. After all that preparation, it’s time to go back inside and get the sweaters off for bedtime. While it might seem like a lot of effort for little payoff, at closer inspection this is a lovely story of one of life’s magical moments, when a family takes time to appreciate nature and each other’s companionship. Readers will want to don their own comfy sweaters and snuggle up with their loved ones.
VERDICT A deceptively simple but warm and cozy celebration of autumn sweater weather.
