Pinder, Eric How to Build a Snow Bear, illustrated by Stephanie Graegin. PICTURE BOOK. Farrar Straus Giroux (Macmillan), $17.
Thomas wants to build a snowman, but he needs a little help from his younger brother(?) who is dressed as and acts like a hibernating bear. If he is very careful in waking and enticing the sleeping bear, however, they could have a fun afternoon in the snow together.
I have not seen the first book about Thomas and his “bear”, but all I could think of was whether the “bear” had some kind of illness. The “bear” doesn’t seem to be so young that it would need to nap so much and the little kids I know usually race out of the bed after nap time.
