Sarah Bear & Sweet Sidney

Written and Illustrated by Nancy Patz

In this affectionate story about an elderly bear couple Sweet Sidney does his best to convince Sarah Bear that spring has arrived and the time has come to leave her cozy bed. But by the time Sarah Bear does wake up, Sweet Sidney has dozed off, exhausted by spring cleaning and picnic-making! At last the two bears are both awake, in time to enjoy daffodils and laughter, picnics and sunshine, “day after springtime day.”


Exuberant text, sparkling illustrations that highlight the passing of winter into spring, and —above all—the love clearly expressed between these delightful bears, make Sarah Bear and Sweet Sidney a picture book for all seasons.
