Little Owl loves many things, including his tree house in City Park, riding his scooter, and eating ice cream. But he does "not" love the new orange scarf his mommy makes him wear. It's too long. It's too itchy. It's too. . . orange!

After several attempts to lose his orange scarf, Little Owl finally succeeds. But after a trip to the yarn store, Mommy has the perfect solution to keep Little Owl warm and happy.


Bear Gets Dressed
by Harriet Ziefert

Find this book in our catalog.

What does Bear wear? Let's look and see. The weather keeps changing, and so does he. It's very chilly out there, so are shorts the right thing? Oh no--but a bright red sweater keeps him cozy and warm. Every spread offers a selection of items from Bear's wardrobe; when the flap is opened, there's Bear, perfectly dressed in the correct garment to enjoy the day, whether there's rain (a yellow slicker for a muddle, puddle morning), sunshine, snow (green mittens) or wind. Not only will toddlers discover which clothes work in what weather; the text reinforces color basics, too.
