Once upon a time, on the day before Christmas, there was a bear sleeping. Bear?s friends came over to decorate the place. When everyone was asleep, Bear made presents for is friends, but he didn?t see Santa behind him. Then, when his friends woke up, the animals were happy. Then he found a quilt his size and fell asleep.

My favorite part is when Bear makes presents for the animals because I like the picture when Bear was making presents. My favorite character is the bear because he has more parts in the story. This book relates to my life because I like bears and it has bears in it. The book has colorful pictures and they help me understand the story.

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