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?
A lumbering bear and his bad hearing create a story that everyone can enjoy.
The boys giggled their way through Big Bear's mishaps and loved repeating Old Man Winter's words.
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).
This humorous story about a bear and winter will lull kids to sleep, too.
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.

Read with two boys ages 3 and 5.
Borrow, at least. This is a book they'll want to read again and again!
