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.
