Book Description

It’s autumn, and Big Bear thinks that his sneezes are causing the leaves and the apples to fall from the trees and the geese to fly away... until the wind convinces him otherwise. Cozy illustrations rendered in pencil and mixed media add warmth and humor to a story that children will love.


Editorial Reviews

Review

he believes that his sneezes are causing leaves and apples to drop from trees and geese to migrate. The wind tries to convince him otherwise, as she knows she is the real source of these events. Finally, with a deep breath and a whirling, twirling mighty shout, Autumn Breeze shows Big Bear her powers. The large, mixed-media illustrations are lively and appealing, and readers will find humor in the scene in which Big Bear is trying to tack all of the fallen leaves back onto branches. This title will appeal to young children, especially where Big Bear has a fan base. --S Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PA, School Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars Bear is back! October 21, 2011
Format:Hardcover
Maureen Wright and Will Hillenbrand have collaborated once again (Sleep,Big Bear, Sleep), giving us another whimsical look at the changing seasons courtesy of a Big Bear who just doesn't hear very well. Poor Bear has a bad case of the sneezes and thinks that its his big ACHOOS! that make the leaves and the apples fall from the trees, and the geese fly south. The Autumn Wind tries to tell him that she's the one doing it, but Bear just doesn't get the message until The Wind finally loses her temper and manages to get his attention. The book ends with dear Bear hiding his head and going to sleep - hopefully for a good long winter nap.

This book has a great read aloud flow, making it perfect for preschool story time groups. Anytime you have a story with so many Achoos! in it, you are guaranteed a good time. Kids will likely laugh at the site of Bear trying to tack leaves back on the trees and pile apples back on the branches. Will Hillenbrand's illustrations are as charming as ever. His portrayal of the Autumn Breeze is priceless, especially when she pronounces in a most grandiose manner "I DO IT ALL - I'M THE AUTUMN BREEZE!" This is just a charming little look at fall that parents and story group leaders will enjoy reading to their kids. I can't wait to see what trouble Bear can get into when Spring rolls around. So retire some of those old fall picture books and make way for Bear. He deserves a spot on any preschooler's shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for keeping up skills on vacation May 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a former teacher who travels with her kids a lot, keeping skills up while on the road is a must. I downloaded this book to have the kids read to me while we were vacationing. This bear is such a cute book. We all loved it.

This is a series and I downloaded several others. The artwork is sweet and colorful and the bear loveable. Great bedtime story for young kiddos, too. Having it available on kindle makes it easy to take with you when you travel!

Format:Hardcover
The story seems a little forced as a follow-up to "Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep" but Hillenbrand's illustrations again bring us the loveable antics of Big Bear and his rabbit friend. Since any child who has the first book read to them at bedtime immediately falls in love with it, I don't see how you can avoid the second book just to see what Bear is up to next. If there were a third I would buy it today for my four year old.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very average, not worth a reread August 6, 2014
By h&jmc
Format:Hardcover
Although I don't find anything extremely offensive in this book, it just want that spectacular. I feel like the mood of the book is angrier than necessary. The wind had such a bad, angry attitude when the plot could have been the same with a silly or funny outlook instead. The book ends with the bear being scared of nature, something I don't want my children to latch onto.
