When cold weather arrives, five friends (a grub, a beetle, two worms and a caterpillar) prepare for the winter. They amuse themselves in conversation and by playing games. But a little caterpillar only wants to sleep and dream.
On the first night of winter, Little Miss Bear will not go to sleep. All winter long is much too long for Little Miss Bear. She is going to miss her stars and her moon, and she is going to miss rolling on hills. Most of all, she is going to miss Mother Bear. But Mother finds a special way to assure her that they will all be there waiting for her--the stars, the moon, the hills, and especially Mother Bear--when she wakes in the spring
A curious young bear, who does not want to miss the delights of winter, skips his first hibernation to play in the snow, glide on the ice, and admire the glittering rows of icicles and snow-covered pine trees.
Over the snow, the world is hushed and white, but under the snow is a secret world of squirrels and snowshoe hares, bears and bullfrogs, and many others who live outside in the woods during the winter.
A journey through the fields, forests, ponds and wetlands to see how animals survive in the snowy winter months, and when the sun's rays grow stronger, join all the animals as they get ready for springtime.
It's cold in the woods and it's time for Little Bear to start his winter sleep. But not before he says good night to all of his special forest friends -- badger, deer, rabbit, mouse, fox, owl, squirrel, and wolf. Now Little Bear can happily fall asleep in his warm and cozy den all snuggled up to his mother ... knowing that his friends will watch out for him during his long winter's sleep.
