Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep!

Summary:

Old Man Winter is reminding Big Bear that it is time to hibernate. There is only one problem - Big Bear can't hear very well. When Old Man Winter says "sleep" Big Bear thinks he should drive a Jeep, leap, even sweep. Will Big Bear ever go to sleep?


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

A lumbering bear and his bad hearing create a story that everyone can enjoy.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Little Kid Reaction

The boys giggled their way through Big Bear's mishaps and loved repeating Old Man Winter's words.

Parent Reaction

I enjoyed this book. It is a fun way to get kids to "play" with words and see how they work (or can be misheard).

Type of Book:
This humorous story about a bear and winter will lull kids to sleep, too.
Educational Themes:

Have fun with words by asking kids to think of other words that rhyme with sleep - or bear! With a bit of a stretch you could use this as an introduction to talking about hibernation.
