Bear learns a new game from his friend Little Bird. When Bear is alone that evening he decides to play his new game of hide and seek with the moon. But when the moon gets lost Bear can't find him anywhere. He becomes worried and enlists all of his woodland friends to help him find the moon again.

The illustrations are adorable and fit well with the story. The lessons of team work and sharing were well written into the plot and will be easily understood by children. The rules of the game are explained to the reader as Little Bird shows Bear how to play. Children will enjoy counting with Bear and Little Bird as they play hide and seek. The story could be read by an early reader with the age appropriate vocabulary and larger print. Both of my elementary age children enjoyed this book. It prompted a fun discussion about the moon when we finished.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
