This is a very simple book about the seasons. A young bears learns about the different seasons and what each seasons beholds. This book would be good in the classroom when discussing weather and seasons. ( )

This book is a wonderful example of a fantasy that has been embedded with informational material. As Bear Child is a personified bear who goes about his business throughout the seasons, Anne Rockwell adds informational material pertaining to what individuals do during the different seasons. For example, she discusses how the weather changes, and she also discusses how individuals will begin to have picnics, paint the house, and play in the park during the summer. Overall, the readers will be very engaged by how realistic the book is, and they will relate aspects of this book to their own lives.

Age Appropriateness: Primary

Setting: The author portrays very realistic settings throughout her book by accurately portraying the seasons, and discussing what a child would notice within their community.
