Bear Wants More follows the first eventful day after Bear wakes up after hibernating all winter. Because Bear slept for so long he is really hungry and eats all the food he has available. Then Mouse, Hare, and Badger show him where to find strawberries, clover, and fish to eat. Back at his den, his other friends Gopher, Mole, Raven, and Wren have started cooking treats and decorating for the party they are throwing in Bear’s honor. But when Bear shows up at his home he’s eaten so much that he can’t fit through the door! The party is moved outside where he eats and eats. Finally Bear is satisfied and falls fast asleep, but only after he ate all the food, even the food for his friends!
