Stunning books by Olivier Dunrea

'Bear Noel'
Farrar, Straus and Giroux

As Christmas approaches, the animals of the north
woods tremble with excitement. Bear Noel is coming!
He strides toward them with his gift-laden sack, while
they roll and romp in the snow, waiting. It is Christmas Eve,
the one night of the year when a hare and a wolf, a fox and
a boar, a hedgehog and a possum, an owl and a mole can
gather peacefully, in the spirit of the happy holiday.

'It's Snowing'
Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Baby is fast asleep when Mama spies the first flakes
of his first snowfall. 'It’s snowing!' she sings. 'Baby,
it’s snowing!' Mama bundles Baby in thick, warm furs
and scrunches into her coat. Out into the snow they go,
to see it, smell it, hear it, taste it, touch it—and play in it.
Olivier Dunrea’s exquisite hymn to snow is the story
of a solitary night when a mother introduces her baby to
the beauty and pleasure of falling snow.
