About the Book.
It has been ten years since David Ezra Stein’s award-winning Leaves hit the shelves and now, Bear has awoken from his hibernation and is looking for Honey. Caldecott Honor winner David Ezra Stein returns with this sweet companion book that celebrates the joy of savoring something you love.
Bear is ravenous when he wakes up from his winter sleep and has one thing on his mind: honey! Alas, it is too soon for honey, so Bear tries hard to be patient. The world around him is waking up, too, and he soon remembers all the other things he loves, like warm grass, berries, and rain. He’s almost content, until, one day, he hears a welcome buzzing sound . . . and finally it is time for Bear to delight in the thing he relishes above all others — and it is as warm, golden, sweet, and good as he remembered.
Picture book author/ illustrator legend Tomie dePaola called Leaves, “the best picture book I’ve seen in years. The text and illustrations are just perfect — and I LOVE it,” and now readers finally get to return to the beloved character with a new lesson on being patient for something special.
