After a snowstorm, Thomas has big dreams to build a snowman in his yard. After struggling a bit by himself, he enlists the help of his sleepy, younger brother to complete not a snowman ... but a snowBEAR! This book is great to read to a set of brothers during the winter.

Thomas wants to build the biggest and best snowman ever. Since he can't do it alone, he'll need a helping hand--or a paw. But little bears love to hibernate. How do you wake up a snoozing bear? By tickling it? Singing to it? Maybe making its favorite snack?

How to Build a Snow Bear is a story about two siblings sharing a wondrous wintry day.
