Divided into two chapters, this book is about friendship between Jefferson Bear and Figgy Twosocks. Whenever Figgy needs help, Bear is always there. When it's time for Bear to hibernate, Figgy feels lonely, so she builds a white snow bear to remind her of her friend Bear. Along the way, she finds a new friend, Hoptail the squirrel. When spring comes, her friend Bear reappears to play with her, so, in the end, she has two friends: a new one and the old one.
She has learned that sometimes an unhappy thing happens so that it can bring in a new happy thing.
When Rick is sick, his friend Jack comes to visit him and tries to help him in many different ways. The book shows you how to help a friend when that friend gets sick. It also shows you how to make a Friendship Award.
