Staff Reviews

Bear loves being part of his adopted family, but what will he do now that winter is coming? Try as he might, he just can't keep his eyes open, but Mama Duck and the siblings reassure him they will keep him in the loop (even though he'll be fast asleep). This is the perfect read-aloud for little ones who tend to fight the urge to go to bed! The illustrations are sweet and funny--and who can resist bears in flotation devices and tap-dancing ducklings? Our resident storyteller, Miss Angela, also gives this book her seal of approval!

— Barb


For fans of Karma Wilson’s Bear Snores On comes a whimsical bedtime story about a bear who is absolutely, positively not sleepy at all. . . .
Bear and his duck family do everything together. That is, until winter arrives. Bear is supposed to hibernate this time of year, but he doesn’t want to miss out on any of the fun. But can Bear really stay awake all winter long? Gentle humor and endearing illustrations bring a delightful twist to a bedtime routine that children and their parents will easily recognize.
