What Will I Do Without You? Reviews
Very Cute! The kids loved it. I liked the illustrations and loved the Jefferson bear especially since the kids have an Uncle Jefferson :)
Summary:It's time for Jefferson Bear to hibernate for the winter, and his friend Figgy Twosocks, a young fox, doesn't understand why he has to go away. Without him, she amuses herself by building a giant snow bear and avoiding snowballs thrown by her brothers. Soon, however, she finds a new friend in Hoptail the squirrel, who keeps her company throughout the long winter. As spring approaches, Figgy worries that Jefferson will be angry with her for making a new friend, but finds that her fears were unfounded. Though the characters' names are rather cutesy, their worries will be immediately recognizable to children. The illustrations are appealing enough, depicting Jefferson Bear as a big, huggable creature and Figgy as small and worried. The warm orange of her fur is set off throughout by the icy tones of the landscapes, making her the center of attention. A book that combines two oft-asked-for topics: hibernation and making new friends. Thank you Amazon!

Jefferson Bear is ready to sleep for the winter. This means his best friend, Figgy Twosocks will be all alone until spring. Figgy is stuck with her two naughty brothers until she meets Hoptail, a lively little squirrel. Together, they have an adventure until Jefferson wakes up. Does their friendship end now or will they become a trio. Jefferson is excited to know all about what went on while he was asleep and even joins in the fun of teaching Figgy's naught brothers a lesson.Showing you can have more than one best friend, 'What Will I Do Without You?' addresses this very issue in a playful picture book.Written by Sally Grindley, illustrated by Penny Dann and published by Kingfisher.
beautiful illustrations along with a nice story... foxes and bears are always great friends :)
