Ages 4-7. Here's a quiet Christmas story of the north woods. On a snowy Christmas Eve, Hare, Fox, Wolf, and other animals listen for Bear Noel, a fine, furry fellow (whose name is a sweet pun on the name of the French Father Christmas, Pere Noel). On this night when "all creatures may come together without fear," the animals gather. As in the Christmas carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas," they chorus and repeat what Bear Noel is doing: "He is tramping through the snow," howls Wolf; "He is jingling his bells," sings Fox; and so on. Soon Bear Noel arrives, singing, laughing, bringing wonderful things. He decorates a tree with nuts and seeds and berries, and welcomes the animals to gather around it. Dunrea beautifully creates the effect of falling snow throughout the pictures and uses a limited palette of browns, grays, and greens with flashes of fox red to lend a celebratory feel. Joyeux Noel! --GraceAnne A. DeCandido Copyright 2000 Booklist Reviews
