  • Reading Level: Grade 1

Bear has been sitting and waiting since dawn. “I’m waiting for Goliath. He’s my best friend.” At last the bus pulls up, but no one gets out. “He’ll definitely show up. You’ll see!” The robins fly south and the first snow falls. When Bear wakes from a long sleep, he hears a noise like a hand sliding slowly across paper. Goliath is coming!

But Goliath’s identity is a big surprise.

This is a warm and surprising story with depth and humor and luminous illustrations.
