From Follett

One day, three friends, a bear, a moose and a beaver, who love adventure set off to climb a mountain together. But on the way there, they decide to make it more exciting by turning the climb into a race to the top. It's only after being sidelined by a series of mishaps -- a boulder tumbling down the path, the moose hanging off the side of the cliff, the bear hanging off the moose hanging off the side of the cliff -- that the three friends realize competition does not always make for a good time.

Booklist (March 1, 2015 (Vol. 111, No. 13))
Preschool-Grade 2. Three competitive friends—a bear, a moose, and a beaver—set out to climb a mountain. While eating their snack, they decide to add a race to make the trek more interesting. The moose takes an early lead, but jumps off the mountain to avoid a falling boulder. The beaver rounds the bend, doesn’t see the moose, and runs even faster. When the bear hears and sees the moose in distress, he thinks nothing of going after him. With both of his friends now in the same predicament, will the beaver try and succeed in saving his friends? Quick thinking and fast action are on his side. The three decide they have had enough excitement and climb more slowly. At the end of the day, they say the best part of the day was just being together. Using simple text and clear, uncluttered illustrations, Oldland has created a warm story of friendship. Younger listeners might ask for repeat go-rounds to anticipate the sequential events, while emerging readers should find success in reading the words with hints from the illustrations.
