This is the MOST wonderful book. It is our bed-time story every night and my 2 year old knows it by heart. She has learned all of the animals, the noises they make (chew chomp crunch) and shouts BEAR SNORES ON at every page!
This book is beautifully illustrated, simple enough for a toddler but detailed enough for Mom and & Dad to enjoy!
BUY THIS BOOK, you will NOT be disapointed!
We can't wait for Bear Wants More which is due out soon!
Karma Wilson knows what makes a book so effective for children. Her rhyming cadence and repeated refrain "but the bear snores on" establish a completely infectious rhythm that aids in memorization. I can stop at any point in this book and my son will immediately chime in with the next line.
Jane Chapman's gorgeous illustrations are the other half of what makes this book so wonderful. Her animal characters are both stylized and lifelike (you can easily imagine what it might feel like to grab a big fistful of the bear's fur), and their facial expressions are priceless.
Aside from the story and artwork, there is the pure sweet joy of getting lost in reading to my child. I say this with no false modesty - my "bear waking up" is awesome! I can "jump and stomp and growl and grumble" with the best of them, and trading the bear's lines with my son never fails to leave us both grinning from ear to ear.
If you have a toddler in the family, you really have to get this book. Chances are you'll enjoy it just as much (if not more than) they will.
When you pick up this book, you will think that you are picking up a piece of art.
And you are!
The text and the pictures simply sing with the flurry of the winter snowflakes. Soft, unexpected, rich, deep, and crisp!
The story is about a bear who keeps snoring on, even after some animals stop by to have tea and popcorn with him. But the party goes on without him as he sleeps. The chomp and crunch of the rabbit, badger and mouse eating honey-nuts- still doesn't wake him up! A fleck of pepper finally rouses him, and they do the party all over again for the sake of the bear. :))
Buy two. ..one for your best friend who will want to borrow your copy!!!
