About the Book
Chipmunk and Bear have a lot in common, despite their difference in size. And Chipmunk is determined to emulate his big friend. "I love snow," says Bear. "Me too!" says Chipmunk. The two dig a path through the snow, build a jolly snowman, have fun skating and skiing—although Chipmunk does need a bit of help from time to time.

Warmth and humor fill the snowy-day adventures of two friends who, despite their physical differences, share work and play and true companionship.


THE REVIEWS ARE IN!

★"From their adventures in the snow to a warm snuggle in their tiny and huge beds, Bear and Chipmunk are friends that new readers will want to turn to again and again. Here's hoping there will be more."
"—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)


★"Short declarative sentences and a great deal of repetition make this picture book perfect for developing readers. The large, joyful watercolor and ink illustrations are enchanting and will help children make predictions regarding unfamiliar words."
"—School Library Journal (starred review)
