About The Book
Bear tries his best to be patient in this newest addition to the bestselling Bear Books series.
Patience might be a virtue but waiting is so hard! On a beautiful sunny afternoon, Bear can’t sit still because he’s got a surprise planned for his good friend Hare. He hustles and bustles and scuttles about. But when, in his excitement, he makes a mess of things, can he set it all right before Hare shows up?
With millions of Bear books sold—it’s hard to wait for the newest!
