Bear Snores On
Bear’s cave fills with animal friends as he sleeps in this classic book from New York Times bestselling team of Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman.
In a cave in the woods,
in his deep, dark lair,
through the long, cold winter
sleeps a great brown bear.
One by one, a whole host of different animals and birds find their way out of the cold and into Bear’s cave to warm up. But even after the tea has been brewed and the corn has been popped, Bear just snores on!
See what happens when he finally wakes up and finds his cave full of uninvited guests—all of them having a party without him!
Bear sleeps because it’s winter and he’s tired. The other animals come in, because it’s cold. They make food and talk and have a party. They don’t want to wake bear up because he might eat them. Then he wakes up and is sad, because they didn’t invite him to the party.
First of all, I love a book where there is repetition so Dino can read along. We keep reading “…and Bear snores on.”
What a clever book about animals coming into Bear’s den to get out of the cold, they all get along staying warm and sharing their food. Then Bear wakes up and you think he’s going to be mad and scare them away, instead he is sad that they didn’t save him any food.
They all feel bad and make more food for Bear and he feels loved. Then at the end of the book, Bear is enjoying the warmth and food while his friends snore on.
The illustrations are detailed and captivating!
