The day before Christmas, snuggled on his floor, Bear sleeps soundly with a great big snore. "Dear Bear. Get up!" Mouse shouts in his ear. "We won't let you sleep through Christmas this year." Bear's friends are determined that he's awake for Christmas and they get him up from his hibernation on Christmas Eve. Bear is excited to experience the holiday with his friends and tries very hard to stay awake, helping to find the right Christmas tree, making mint tea and singing carols. Finally, though, it's his friends who have fallen asleep - and Bear Stays Up! He makes food and presents for his friends, not noticing that Father Christmas has also come to visit. Christmas morning dawns bright and happy for all!
The story and illustrations are enjoyable. The lesson of friendship and sharing is well presented. Although a great book, my favorite of the collection is still Bear Snores On.

Another great story book in the "Bear" series. My 2 1/2 year old son loves all the characters in the series. We bought the "Bear Snores On" first and fell in Love with the well written rhymes and beautiful illustrations. They are easy to read for all ages! We now own all the books in this series! Although we bought the Chrismas book in July, he still likes to read it! I cannot wait for the holiday season!
Publishers Weekly, 2004-09-27 Bear's thoughtful buddies rouse him from his deep hibernation nap just in time for Christmas Eve. With creative planning, the animals get their ursine friend into the holiday spirit-and the Yuletide preparations. And by the time Santa makes his appearance, guess who's tuckered out? (Not a certain Bear.) This duo's latest Bear book sustains the sweetness and humor of its predecessors (Bear Snores On; Bear Wants More) via rhyming, read-aloud-ready text and soft acrylic scenes of the cuddly creatures and wintry landscapes.
