In this universal, seasonal title, Bear gathers his friends both feathered and furry, old and young, for a celebration of community and love. Acclaimed author Lola M. Schaefer?s and award-winning artist Bethanne Andersen?s breathtaking picture book explores themes of understanding, empathy, and peace, and will bring joy to any family?s holiday celebration.


On a cold winter morning, Bear welcomes a new star to the sky and searches for the perfect tree?a majestic evergreen?under which to host a holiday celebration for everyone to enjoy. Bear roars to the East, the West, the North, and the South; his invitation echoing around the world. Guests start to arrive. They are feathered, furry, scaled?on the wing, on four paws, on two feet. They are young and old. They bring gifts. They bring love. They bring hope for peace.
