The bear?s friends want him to stay up for Christmas. Bear is very sleepy. His friends try to wake him up. Bear tries real hard to stay up. They sing him songs and make crafts. Bear?s friends fall asleep. Bear stays awake and makes them presents. They all celebrate Christmas.

My favorite part of the story is when Bear made them presents. It was nice of Bear to do that for them. I like Bear because he was nice to his friends. I like to give my friends presents for Christmas. The pictures help tell the story.

I think others should read this story because it is a good story.
