Bear and his duck family do everything together. That is, until winter arrives. Bear is supposed to hibernate this time of year, but he doesn’t want to miss out on any of the fun. But can Bear really stay awake all winter long?


Gentle humor and endearing illustrations bring a delightful twist to a bedtime routine that children and their parents will easily recognize.

Praise for Bear Is Not Tired

"Contrasting Bear’s bulk against the ducks’ daintiness,

Gavin’s watercolors offer humor and tenderness in equal supply, making this blended family irresistible". 

- Publishers Weekly ★


"It’s an unlikely family that is depicted with tenderness and encouragement on every page. 

Warm and wonderful."

- Kirkus Reviews
