It's a simple story that emphasizes sharing, problem-solving and playing together. The rhyming language is for the most part, natural. There are a few passages where the meter seemed off but overall it's written with a good rhythm. Great for little ones, especially during a winter day.
Fortunately, Big Bear comes along and figures a big, furry solution. Can you guess what it is? It's cute, and has a happy ending with some hot cocoa at the end of the story.
This would be a fun book for preschoolers ages 2-4 or early readers if they can read it themselves. It would be a fun winter-time read, but be prepared to be asked to go sledding after you read it!
