Despite the balmy temperatures outside, Winter is coming. Many animals prepare for the traditionally harsh season in different ways, and it is an excellent time to explore your favorite Branch of the St. Louis Public Library for informational and entertaining stories about these creatures. One of our favorites being the bear, here are a few tales to get you started:
