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

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.

Poor Big Bear believes his sneezes cause the leaves to fall from the trees, the apples to fall to the ground, the sleeping geese to fly from a freezing pond. It is by coincidence the wind blows so hard at the time Big Bear sneezes that IT is the cause of what Big Bear thinks he is causing. The wind tries to convince Big Bear that he is not responsible for what happens when he sneezes. As the beautiful rhyming story progresses, the wind is able to convince Big Bear he is not at fault. The illustrations are beautiful, the story simple. You will love to read this book to your child.

The first Big Bear book was awesome Sleep Big Bear Sleep (SBBS) had an actual book feel. This one however had tiny pictures on a black background. Like someone did a cut and paste. I prefer the layout of SBBS much better and so did my daughter. She has not asked me to read this to her again and again like SBBS.

Good enough book to read to a 2 year old, but not something that will ever be more than a 5 min read to get your kid to sleep. Ok story, lots of rhymes and holds my 2 year old's attention for most of the story.

My four year old and I really enjoy reading the big bear books. They make him laugh and I enjoy the cadence of the story while reading out loud. The illustrations are fantastic and it's a great story.

My son is 19 months old and it is difficult getting him to hold still long enough to read a book. He loves big bear and even helps turn the page as we're reading. The illustrations are wonderful, especially great for night time reading.

Got this book after reading others by Maureen Wright. Follows the same style as the others, but is very entertaining. We've read this almost every day for a couple weeks now, so not a book that she's read once and is ready to move on.

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.
