PreS-Gr 1–In this variation on the classic carol, a mother bear and her cub enjoy the wonders of nature. They encounter other woodland animals living in harmony or peacefully slumbering. The soft-focus artwork is large and appealing, but the verse is clunky and the light, silvery font is difficult to read. The most striking spread shows the bears looking up into the aurora borealis, with the deep blues and florescent green/yellows evoking warmth and awe, or as the last sentence of the books says (if you can read it), “Hope for our beautiful world.”Diane Olivo-Posner, Los Angeles Public Library
