it's raining blueberries

Old Bear by Kevin Henkes

I especially loved this one. Old bear falls asleep for the winter as it is snowing. He dreams his way through the seasons. Spring finds him as a young bear cub asleep in a giant purple crocus, summer brings a daisy sun and a sky raining blueberries, autumn turns the forest yellow, orange, and brown, and winter sparkles with many-colored stars. He wakes up and can't believe he is not dreaming still because it is already spring!

I really love how the illustrations spark the imagination. Juliet liked the giant purple crocus and of course the blueberries raining from the sky.
