About The Book

Join Moonbear for his first sunrise in this all-new adventure from award-winning author and illustrator Frank Asch.

Moonbear loves watching the moon rise, enjoying its beauty and wonder. But when Little Bird tells Moonbear that sunrise is just as beautiful as moonrise, Bear wants to see that, too! Can he find a way to enjoy his favorite nighttime activity (moongazing, of course) and still wake up early?

This all-new Moonbear book brings a beloved character to life with a fresh adventure.
