An Adorable Holiday Read

Bear Stays Up for Christmas by Karma Wilson is another fantastic holiday picture book. It’s wintertime and Bear is hibernating, but his friends wake him up. They are all determined to spend Christmas together. Mouse, Hare and Badger and all his friends do their best to keep Bear busy so that he stays awake.

Together they pick out a Christmas tree and bring it back to Bear’s lair. Then they get to work decorating it. Bear’s friends make snacks and sing songs as they wait for Christmas morning to come.

Bear Stays Up is a wonderful read for kids ages 3-6. The integration of rhymes and repetition of the line “But the bear stays up” will engage readers and have them reading along.
