Bear goes in search of a more comfortable place to hibernate and ends up where he began. Genial, predictable bedtime reading. ( )

this book is about a young bear who is getting ready to go into hibernation for the winter. He can't find a comfortable spot in the bear cave it is too loud, too crowded and very uncomfortable. So the bear decides to take an adventure into the woods to find him a bed to sleep in. When he goes into the woods, its too cold, windy, and wild for him. I think this book is good for the classroom because i can feel like the students would relate because children love quite places to sleep. ( )

With Eric Carle-like art, McFarland's book adds to an overcrowded field of animals searching for something, in this case, a bed. Bear goes to the bird, the rabbit, the hedgehog and of course none of their homes are suitable for a bear. By story's end, the cave that first seemed too noisy, too big, and too crowded is now, by comparison, just perfect. Yawn. Time to hibernate. ( )

Children will fall in love with Bernard, the sleepy bear with a simple wish, in A Bed for Bear. It’s time for Bernard to hibernate, but the bear cave is too crowded, too quiet, and too uncomfortable. So Bernard sets out to search the forest for the perfect bed for winter. But all he discovers are spots too windy, too wet, and too wild for him until he realizes that the perfect bed for a bear was right in front of him all along. With simple text and evocative illustrations by debut author-illustrator Clive McFarland, this heartwarming picture book is a perfect part of any bedtime routine.
